Emotional Support

Caring for a patient in this unfortunate and frightening situation can take an emotional toll. Mummy’s Star is ready to support you in navigating the unique professional and personal challenges.

Our Support Team at Mummy’s Star have all lived with or worked in the field of cancer and healthcare, and have vital academic and anecdotal advice as well as a deep well of empathy and understanding, which you can access.

If you feel you would benefit from knowledgeable peer support, we can connect you to a dedicated Information & Support worker (separate from that of your patient, if they are also being supported by us). They can offer regular check-ins either by text, email or phone, or even a one-off call to chat through a case. ​
