“Appointments with clinicians would leave me overwhelmed by all the information regarding my treatment and recovery plan. I wasn’t sure what was the best option for me. It was from this point on, where I began to lean on Reframe. Having the opportunity to regularly speak to a nurse specialist was just what I needed. Someone at my side to simplify the information, advise me on my recovery options, and help me see things from a different perspective.

Following my treatment, I found myself needing the toilet more frequently and often had to explain my situation to complete strangers. I could no longer be spontaneous and had to plan ahead for facilities. Reframe sourced a radar key on my behalf so I could access public toilets immediately and enabled me to take back some control of my diagnosis. This was one of the biggest impacts that they had on my recovery. It might sound small but, it made a real difference to me and helped me to continue living my life as I did before. I felt more confident to go out in public knowing that I had a solution should I need one.

Reframe reminded me that I should come first, not my diagnosis or the health system. I didn’t not alone knowing my Reframe team was at hand. The ongoing support and guidance has ensured that my recovery plan focuses on my personal goals and I’m in a much better place.”
