Patient Forums

Patient Forums

One of our aims is to address the feeling of isolation that can accompany diagnosis of a rare disease.

We are a community of patients with thymic cancers, family members and carers from across the UK. In addition to an active and growing Facebook group, we hold regular patient forums in the UK during the year at which we share experiences and information.

We usually have a medical professional attend each meeting to answer our questions and share the latest developments and/or other information that may be relevant to us.

  • Patient Meeting, Gordon Survivorship Hub, Guy’s Cancer Centre, London, UK

    24th May @ 2:00 PM – 5:30 PM GMT

    In-person patient meeting at Guy’s Cancer Centre with talks from allied healthcare professionals and a chance to socialise and catch up with ThymicUK group members.

    Guy’s Cancer Hospital is still operating mandatory mask-wearing and has precautions in-place to keep visitors safe. We haven’t taken the decision to host an in-person meetup lightly and feel that it’s important for our members to meet up in person at this time.
