Rare Disease Day 2015

Rare Disease Day 2015

Appendix Cancer and PMP Patient Organization Statement

The Rare Disease Day 2015 theme is: Living with a Rare Disease – Day-by-Day, Hand-in-Hand.

As patients and caregivers who have been impacted by peritoneal cancers (Appendix Cancer, Pseudomyxoma Peritonei, and other Peritoneal Metastases) our organizations have chosen to join together to share a simple message about these diseases.

Receiving a diagnosis

My original symptom was an ‘irritated‘ bladder — it is difficult to describe but the closest I can come up with it that it felt like it was vibrating all the time.

Susan, Cancer 52 and the House of Lords

I don’t know what has come over me recently but I am just starting to raise my head above the parapet. Which, considering I was first diagnosed in 2003, does make you wonder what I’ve been doing in between my 6 operations (MOAS in 2009), 3 rounds of chemo, radiotherapy, rounds of IVF and — oh, yes — that ‘miracle baby’ who is now 6 years old and in full teenage strop mode.

Georgina’s Story

I feel great. I was worried about catching colds and things without my spleen but I’m as healthy as I was before. My son and husband have caught colds but I have not which is normal for us. I have caught a sickness bug from my son since surgery but I recovered quickly with no problems and again compared to what I’ve been through, it felt like nothing.
