GUIDANCE AND ADVOCACY
From diagnosis to recovery and towards end of life
We are familiar with the hospitals in Chiang Mai and have experience dealing with many of the city's medical specialists, including oncologists. We are able to provide help in identifying the best specialist for a particular type of cancer and support when attending appointments, including providing advocacy, highlighting possible questions and note taking.
We help patients throughout their illness trajectory and provide care and support for those receiving palliative care and towards end of life, whether at home or in a specialist facility
As cancer survivors we have personal experience with the myriad of diagnostic procedures, treatment decisions and the agonizing wait for results, which go with a cancer diagnosis. We understand the many emotions and complex decisions patients face. We are able to be there to listen to any concerns, provide emotional support or advice and help facilitate communications with family members in other countries
We have a wealth of information gathered through our network of former patients, medical specialists and some of the alternative and complementary therapists we have worked with. We also have Kate, a qualified nurse from the UK, experienced in working with cancer patients, who can provide advice and information related to medical concerns such as symptom control and pain management.
