Thankfully, Jenny had Helping Hand.

When Jenny was diagnosed with cancer, she was devastated and worried about how her family would cope. Because of her significant surgery, she knew she had a long road to recovery.

As well as feeling anxious about her treatment, she was stressed about being off work.

Luckily Jenny had Helping Hand, a personal support service from Royal London.

A dedicated nurse got in touch to see how she could help.

Jenny’s nurse gave advice on coping with the side effects of her treatment and recommended therapies to improve her strength. She also sent her information about her right to time off work.

Jenny felt reassured that when she needed to talk there would be someone to listen.

Her husband also had a dedicated nurse to help ease his worries.

Helping Hand meant Jenny and her family had a constant source of support.
