Bladder cancer patient stories
Sharing patient stories is common across cancer care, and serves as a powerful tool to raise awareness about the disease, and to shed light on the patient experience. Patient stories have shown to positively influence healthcare system transformation over the years, and are a catalyst for more patient-centred care.
Equally, sharing personal stories about bladder cancer can be extremely helpful to others who may be going through the same thing, and can create a sense of community – making people feel less alone during a time that can be scary and isolating. For others who may be in an earlier stage of care, patient stories provide people with the knowledge about what to expect throughout the entire care pathway.
While we are building up this resource, you can find shared patient stories from our member organisations. We hope that they can provide you with useful information about different experiences with bladder cancer, and equip you with the knowledge needed to confidently manage your disease. You can find our members on Our Network page.
If you are interested in submitting a personal patient story about bladder cancer, we invite you to get in touch with us.
