Cancer Help UK is a devoted website to all forms of cancer, but also contains a vast store of knowledge specifically dealing with Head & Neck Cancer. I have spent hours delving into these fascinating articles.
This website is the work of Mick Pilling (who has visited us twice) and Ralph Goodson who are trying to form a National Network of support groups. It is a fascinating site.
The email from Johnathan Chamberlain is below;
This email is to inform you that The Cancer Survivor's Bible has just been published. This is the updated edition of Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide (40% bigger!). This is the book I wish I'd had when my wife was diagnosed 18 years ago.. If we'd had this information then she might be alive today. Having access to the right information is vital. I didn't have it when I needed it but I hope I can help you have access to it.
Many people today are taking responsibility for their cancers and recovering. Ian Clements, an engineer who lives in Brighton (UK), is one whose story can teach us a lot. Three years ago, Ian was in a hospice within days of dying of cancer. But a last throw of the dice got him out of the hospice and three years on he is alive and well and cancer free. His is one of over two dozen stories that I tell in the attached book (in pdf and Kindle versions) that I urge you to read and circulate to everyone you know who is affected by cancer.
There is no doubt that there are many approaches that can help people live longer and in greater comfort – either they will help fight the cancer or they will help the body return to a state of wellness. That’s why I wrote my book, The Cancer Survivor’s Bible. At 550 pages this is the most detailed information resource available in print that looks at all sides of the world of cancer – conventional and non-conventional. Here are some testimonials I have received:
‘This is an incredibly informative and useful book. Every one of you needs it in your library. This is, from now on, my primary encyclopaedia when I have a question about cancer and its treatment.’ – Bill Henderson, author of Cancer Free
‘I recommend this book to everyone, whether or not you have cancer, as ’The’ reference book on cancer. This book gives hope….It explains clearly the arguments for and against the multitude of treatments, both preventive and curative, and how to find them. I wish I had read this before I was diagnosed as doctors and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this.’ – D Bushell (Amazon UK)
‘Well done, I do think you have made a good job of covering such a wide variance in subjects and keeping it readable. I particularly like your writing style, factual and calm about what is frankly the ridiculous state of relationships between orthodox and alternative approaches.’—Patricia Peat, Cancer Options (cancer consultancy) ‘Having just been through surgery myself to remove a breast cancer lump and facing follow-up treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy, I am so glad I was tipped off to read this book… This book helps to put things in perspective and was invaluable to me in making my decisions about follow-up treatment.’ – Lucy W. (Amazon review)
‘I work with cancer patients and have found this book incredibly helpful to them (and me & my work colleagues). Very well laid out, well written.’ – S. Lumley, cancer patient counsellor
“I want to say how inspirational your book and all its suggestions have been. It has enabled me to keep positive for my sister over the past terrible months.” – Emma GreenerThe Cancer Survivor’s Bible is available from all internet bookshops. You can find more information at www.fighting cancer.com While the official publishing date is July 15th, the book is available now. Don't wait.
Please tell everyone you know about this important book.
P.S. The book also cover issues such as lymphodoema and pain management

My name is Alison and I am the logistics manager for C21 Understanding and Coping with Cancer in the 21stCentury’.
I would like to introduce you to C21 which is the UK’s first mainstream cancer magazine and although established a couple of years ago, we are re-launching it with the next issue going to print at the end of April. Our aim is that the magazine should bring together healthcare professionals, cancer patients, their friends and families by providing a forum where these different groups can interact with each other to inform and support including latest developments in the cancer field and personal stories. We would like our magazine to reach as many people as possible and therefore the magazine is FREE. It is a quality publication and you can get a feeling for the content by visiting our websitewww.c21century.co.uk Here you will be able to download previous issues and read articles online.
We are working with Sir Mike Richards (Prof Richards was appointed as the first National Cancer Director in 1999) and the National Cancer Action Team who want to use the magazine to talk about their initiatives and strategies, as well as the Royal College of GP’s who want to talk about their new Cancer Lead, and of course the Royal College of Nursing, Royal College of Radiologists and the Royal College of Surgeons (England).
In the next issue we are including a 32 page special on radiology and radiotherapy; the second part of Debbie Chazen’s (Calendar Girls) article on Breast Cancer; Antioxidants – myth or miracle; Ask the Expert by Robert Grimer Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham; Complementary Therapies suitable when undergoing cancer treatment; case studies on ULMS, Ewing’s Sarcoma and Bowel Cancer; the Michael Douglas Interview, Overseas Cancer treatment and hair loss, as well as our regular sections on legal matters, reconstructive surgery and even end of life. Additionally, from issue 6 we will be featuring two new sections focusing on cancers which affect children and young adults (16-19)
I very much hope that you will take copies of the magazine to pass on to the people you are trying to help. If you would like to see a hard copy of issue 4, I can arrange to post one to you. Please drop me an email or give me a call to let me know how many you would suit your requirements. We are always looking for case studies to provide inspiration for others so if you feel you would like to work with us we would love to hear from you.
