Hello My name is Niki Johnson. In the last 2 years, I have been supporting Deaf people who have Cancer and their carers.
Why Deaf Carers? They too have similar barriers.
This project has been funded by Macmillan. Deaf cancer support project is expanding and going really well. Our service is for Nottingham/shire & Derby/shire. I have good news to share. Since the coronavirus and extended lock down for possible further 3 weeks or maybe more, we don’t know. Our service can provide videocalls support for Deaf people who have cancer . Those who are at home and want to talk another person affected by cancer or Carers, we can provide as they can empathise with you.
We have a team, Deaf Macmillan volunteers, all have been trained by Macmillan and Self Help. They are happy to provide video support in the UK.
We can use text message, messenger, or Zoom. We can provide 1:1 support or other deaf people with cancer on Zoom.
We wanted to let you know our brilliant news and the volunteers are ready and happy to support you.
Maybe you can’t share your feelings with your family, you can with us or other Deaf people who have cancer.
If you are living in the UK and want to chat to get things off your chest
If you are interested and would like the support, please contact us on:
Zoom – volunteer will give you the ID & password
