Share your story

Why your story matters

Your story is incredibly important to us. It could give someone considering radiotherapy a better understanding of what lies ahead, reassure someone having treatment, or give friends and family guidance about how to support a loved one.

Your story will also make sure politicians and the media understand why access to high quality radiotherapy treatment in UK is so critical. It could raise awareness of the issues facing cancer services in the UK and prevent others suffering.

Getting started

We know that sharing your story might be difficult and emotional because of what you’re going through, or have been through. Remember, it’s your story and it’s up to you what you choose to share.

Don’t worry if the story you submit isn’t perfect – you can just write a few paragraphs about your experience.
