I couldn’t speak for a week and could only communicate through writing everything down.

Her Macmillan nurse referred her to the Clinical Psychology Cancer Service based at King’s Mill Hospital to help with emotional support.She praised Dr Sanchia Biswas in particular and described how therapy ‘played a huge part in helping me recover’.
