Every person whose life has been affected by cancer has a different story to tell. We believe by listening to these stories and understanding them, we’ll be able to learn from them and improve things in the future. This is called patient engagement and experience.

This page covers stories from patients involved in the work of the Cancer Alliance. We want to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has shared their story.

If you have a story to share please get in touch or alternatively you can join our membership.

Michael's Story

Michael is from Rotherham. He was 55 years old when he was diagnosed with bowel cancer. Here he tells his story including how difficult it was for him in hospital but how he’s gone on to improve his life through exercise, after getting the all-clear. Michael is involved in the work of the Cancer Alliance and his story has even been taken to the Cancer Alliance Board to share learning and ensure patient engagement is at the heart of all we do.
