Article About us

Welcome to Cancer Chat.

Cancer Chat was launched in 2008 and is a moderated discussion forum run by Cancer Research UK where you can talk to others affected by cancer, share experiences and get support.

If you're affected by cancer, whether you have cancer, or you're a family member or friend of someone with cancer, it can be valuable to talk to people who have had similar experiences. 
Cancer Chat is here for you whenever – and wherever – you need it  

Everyone can view the pages on Cancer Chat but if you'd like to post a message, you will need to register or sign-in using the links at the top of the page. 
For help with using the site you can visit our Forum Guides section or contact our friendly team of moderators

We want Cancer Chat to be a secure and helpful environment for all of the community. So please remember that by using Cancer Chat you are agreeing to follow our terms and conditions 
and Community Guidelines

We hope the Cancer Chat community gives you the information and support you are looking for because sometimes you just need to talk to someone who understands.
