John's story

We are very grateful to everyone who has shared their story with us on this website. We know that many people find reading the story of other patients very helpful when trying to make sense of their diagnosis or cancer journey. We also know that these stories can be very powerful in helping to raise awareness of bladder cancer and highlight the urgent need for new treatments, research and support for those with bladdercancer.

If you would like to tell your story please do get in touch with us by email at group@actionbladdercanceruk.org  

We can arrange for Sara Jane, our Patient Programme Officer, to get in touch to help you tell your story if that would be helpful, and we also have a 'hints and tips' sheet to give you more ideas about what to write.
