Topic: The Times of London - Cancer Articles

The Times of London recently published a Health Supplement around the idea of 'living with cancer' - an increasing number of people find themselves in this position all over the world.

I wonder if that pattern holds true for cc?

The generally positive articles are together here - they published the supplement around about the 5/6th April - scroll down if others have been added later.

Personally I was interested in one article suggesting that a fresh look at Wikipedia is being undertaken by Cancer UK due to its prominence in google searches and also the one about 'what happens when the hospital treatment stops?'. '5 Myths' and 'will I get back to normal' were also helpful for me.

There may be some guidelines/rules/helpful thoughts in the information that assists some of you supporters and providers of assistance on this forum.

There will be some interesting comparisons to be made with the UK where our survival rates are not amongst the best in Europe or Australia

Re: The Times of London - Cancer Articles

Hi Malcolm,

Thanks for this and for the links to the pieces in the Times. Pity now that the Times now only lets paid suscribers read their articles, I guess that this is the way that many online news sites will be heading in the future.

I also liked the story that you mention regarding Cancer Research UK and Wikipedia and here is a link from CRUK about this -

Many thanks once again for posting your links.

Best wishes,
