Discovering you’ve got cancer, or that you’re going to need chemo, radiotherapy or surgery, is a big emotional challenge. Talking to someone who’s been through what you’re facing can help if you’re feeling anxious or alone.

It’s in the Bag can ‘buddy you up’ with someone else who’s been there. We’ll do our best to pair you with a guy who’s gone through the same or a very similar course of treatment. They can explain what to expect, and suggest ways of making your journey a little easier.

Once you’ve been matched with a buddy, we’ll pass their contact details on to you. You can then get in touch with them to arrange something.

To request a buddy, please ring 0117 342 3472 or email hello@itsinthebag.org.uk
