This booklet is about getting good health care if you have cancer and a learning disability.
Hearing you have cancer throws you into a world of “unknowns”. It’s like finding yourself in the middle of a maze with no clue how you’re supposed to find your way back out again. It’s confusing and scary when you don’t know which way to turn. But that’s where we all step in – your loved ones, care and medical professionals and the many organisations dedicated to supporting you. We’ll make sure that you will never be alone through this, and can set you on the right path until everything starts making sense again. This booklet should help you on your way.
