If you or someone you know has been recently diagnosed with cancer, help is out there. This help page is an eclectic gathering of resources which the PAFOC fellowship have offered as suggestions. It will be a list which will be in constant flux as contacts and groups form and disperse. For every member of the cancer community, there is a different touchstone and inspiration, and thanks to the web, there are again as many links and paths to follow. Please tell us of one which helped you so we can make it available for others to explore.
