I’ve Just Been Diagnosed

Being told that you have a gynaecological cancer can come as a total shock – leaving you with many questions and perhaps anxieties and uncertainties about what the future may hold.

Your consultant and /or gynaecology specialist nurse will explain the type of gynaecological cancer you have and what will happen next in terms of further tests and treatment options – and the possible side effects. It can often be difficult to take in all in the information that you’ve been given even though you may have it in leaflet/booklet form also and that is why at The Eve Appeal we are here to compliment your cancer teams support you throughout your journey from the initial diagnosis, through to treatment and living with and beyond cancer.

We understand that for many people, a cancer diagnosis may be life changing, and being able to talk to someone about how you feel, your worries, practical , emotional , what to tell your family, money worries, fear for the future, whatever you want to talk about. You can contact our specialist gynaecological cancer information service – ask eve – which is led by our specialist information nurse, who will be able to answer any of the questions that you may have around your recent diagnosis and living with cancer.

You are not alone, we are here with you every step of the way to provide support and information. Advances in understanding cancer have evolved over the last 30 years women and their families are now living with and beyond their gynaecological cancer.
