Star Throwers’ Cancer Information Service is here to help you navigate your cancer diagnosis and the decisions you may face throughout.
To register as a new patient for support please fill in our online ‘Patient Questionnaire’ and to access our support services as a partner, loved one or carer for someone who has or has previously had cancer please complete our ‘Carer Questionnaire’.
People with cancer are often asked to make treatment decisions and require information about their cancer diagnosis and its impact. At Star Throwers we aim to help you understand the information that you have been given by your medical team e.g. translating medical reports or explaining why specific investigations are required in order for you and your medical team to plan appropriate treatments for you.
We are here to:
• make peer-reviewed cancer research literature accessible and understandable.
• help you understand the evidence for and against alternative treatments .
• help you understand and explore the possibility of relevant clinical trials.
Please note: Star Throwers does not offer medical advice and we encourage people to talk to their medical team before making any final decisions.

Working with the Anticancer Fund
Star Throwers is delighted to be working with the non-profit organisation the Anticancer Fund in order to provide the best possible service to the cancer patients we support. Star Throwers is now able to provide joint cancer information sessions via video conference with a physician from the Anticancer Fund to support those with a cancer diagnosis. The My Cancer Navigator service from the Anticancer Fund is there to help patients understand their disease and treatment options through evidence-based information. Support can also be provided for questions on specific topics, like clinical trials or treatments still in development.
