PMP Pals' Network Resource & Support Groups
Are you a PMP/PSM Appendix Cancer or Colorectal Cancer patient seeking support?
We have more than two dozen specialized support groups in 53 countries to assist you!
Pals do not provide medical advice.
Pals do share helpful suggestions for coping with cancer!
Your "Pals" will answer your questions about consulting with a specialist, preparing for medical treatment, and recuperation, and will assist you with practical answers to your concerns about:
How do I prepare for surgery?
Shall I tell my employer that I have cancer?
Will I need to apply for disability benefits?
How can I manage the side effects of chemotherapy?
Where can I obtain health insurance coverage?
Where can I find references for a particular surgeon?
How do I balance cancer treatment with my career and family life?
Plus, "tips" for ...
returning to work following treatment,
resuming an active lifestyle,
effects on your personal and social life,
diet and nutrition needs,
living with an ostomy,
and a myriad of other questions you may have!
Your questions and concerns will be addressed personally, without exposing you to cyberspace message boards or "chat rooms!"
“Pals” communicate directly with each other via email, telephone calls, SKYPE or personal visits!
