Here are some great resources and organisations I've found along the way (click on the names below to be redirected to site): 

Medical information about cancer and treatment

Ways to take care of yourself - from eating, moving and resting 

  • Exercising through chemotherapy. ABC's story about how exercise is helping to manage side effects of chemotherapy.

  • Jessica Sepel healthy eating. Simple and healthy guide to nourishing your body and includes recipes (most are gluten-free, sugar-free, but definitely not fun-free !)

  • Mindfulness and meditation guide. The Calm app for i-phones and smart phones has a heap of free guides but well worth paying for full access to help with everything from eating, depression, stress, and happiness.

Government resources to help with finances and other support 

My networks of support 

Information recommended by others

I'll add additional information here that is recommended by people who get in touch with me.

  • - online information about asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma (United States site with Australian references).

  • Pleural Mesothelioma Cancer -  learn about the most common form of asbestos cancer, which affects the lining of the lungs (United States site).


If you need an excuse to find some quiet time, I've found these to be staple items in my brain pantry: some for eating, some for reflecting.
