Welcome to After Cancers

AfterCancers.com has been created specifically for cancer survivors, their friends and family as a resource to use after cancer treatment. Written and created by a cancer survivor who wanted to share her experience of life after cancer, the ups and downs, the continuing battle with side effects, post care issues, mental well-being but most of all learning that life after cancer is good!

CANCER, the word can strike fear into people’s hearts. Most have experience of cancer in some form or other, via friends or family or yourself. When diagnosed with cancer it can seem as if time has instantly stood still, the world carries on and you are now stuck in a cancer bubble not knowing when or if it will burst. Then one day you emerge on the other side, battered around the edges, carrying the scars and you realise you will never be the person you were before. So how do you carry on after cancer? Both physically and mentally cancer survivors can feel a whole range of emotions which are difficult to manoeuvre through.

This site contains a wealth of knowledge and opinions – from products that work for after cancer care or during treatment to how to have fun again. Check out the diary page where AfterCancers.com creator Verite Reilly Collins provides a direct, straight talking insight into her world after cancer with real life experiences and a good dose of humour thrown in! The AfterCancers.Com Blog highlights some of the main areas of after cancer issues and hurdles that many cancer survivors experience – have a read, find information and comment on recent articles.

Having fun after cancer is fundamental to getting better long term, for both body and mind, so it’s important we dedicate a whole page on how to have fun, again. This includes a section on products specifically sourced, tried and tested by cancer survivors like you. From skin creams to recipe books, there is something for everyone.
