ME/CFS and cancer treatment – help required with preparation of leaflet

ME Association medical adviser Dr Charles Shepherd is preparing a new MEA information leaflet that covers the main problems – emotional, practical, side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, etc – that may occur in the unlikely situation where cancer is also diagnosed in someone with ME/CFS at some point in their illness.

If you have any personal experience of developing cancer whilst suffering from ME/CFS, and have any advice or information  that you want to pass on to other people in this situation, please do so via:


0344 576 5326

Available every day of the week between these times: 10am - 12noon, 2pm - 4pm and 7pm - 9pm.

Calls cost the same as other standard landline numbers (starting 01 or 02). If you have a call package for your landline or mobile phone then calls will normally come out of your inclusive minutes.
