I try where possible to help charities with awareness, especially cancer associated ones and newer organisations dedicated to awareness and support.
February is oesophageal cancer awareness month.
As somebody who has had oesophageal problems in the past (but was lucky enough to get the right treatment), I am aware these issues so often get missed or misdiagnosed and why I support the OPA (Oesophageal Patients Association):–
Helpline 0121 704 9860 9- 3 weekdays
The OPA is a caring organisation offering advice and support to patients, carers and their families affected my oesophageal or gastric cancers.
They understand the fears and worries of undergoing treatement and help patients at whatever stage whether recently diagnosed or receiving longterm treatment.
Helping to improve quality of life for those suffering from these conditions.
Please visit their website http://www.OPA.org.uk for newsletters, latest news and to locate support groups local to your area.
