Living With and Beyond Cancer

More and more people are living with the consequences of cancer and its treatment – they are said to be  Living With and Beyond Cancer. But currently there’s not enough research relevant to living with and beyond cancer.
The National Cancer Research Institute is working on a project to change this. They have opened a new survey for patients and the people who look after or have looked after them, and the professionals who work with them. The aim is to identify the most important questions that research should address.
Tell them the questions that you would like answered by research by filling out the survey and help  to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. The  survey will be open until 15 October 2017. You can find out more about the project at
