Re: FORGOTTEN CANCERS PROJECT VOLUNTEERS

I am participating in the project too. I received and returned the saliva kit a few months ago. I haven't heard anything back but assumed that 1. my saliva was not usable ( I have very thick and sparse saliva) and 2. I had had a re-ocurrance of cancer so thought maybe my sample was no longer usable. I did communicate my cancer status and received acknowledgement so maybe the test just take along time.

Thanks so much for bringing this up (here and in other threads) as it allows us to feedback to the Forgotten Cancers team, which we’ve done and they’re very keen to sort this out. We’ll be in touch via private message with each of the people who have raised concerns on this site so we can follow up further – but anyone else with concerns please let us know. Warm Regards, Kate Cancer Connections Admin Team
