'Survivorship' event aims to help people affected by cancer
A SPECIAL survivorship event is being held at a North-East hospital to help support people affected by, living with and beyond cancer.
Patients, carers, family members and friends are invited to drop in to the event organised by South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
To be held on Wednesday October 16 at the holistic cancer care centre at The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough from 10am to 2pm, the event will bring cancer patients together to meet, share, learn and get more out of life.
Health care professionals will talk about lifestyle issues, exercise, getting back to work, finances and other helpful topics.
Everyone is welcome to come along, ask questions and see what resources are available.
Complementary therapy taster sessions will be available and it is an opportunity for patients and carers to help shape the future delivery of cancer services.
Health care professionals are welcome to drop in.
Organisers say that anyone interested should come along on the day and there is no need to book a place.
Free car parking and refreshments will be available. For further information please telephone the Macmillan information and support centre on 01642 855674.
Nicky Hand, cancer lead nurse said: "We hope people will drop in and see us so we can help provide the support and advice people need to be able to live beyond the initial impact of cancer, and continue to be as independent and active as possible."
"The good news is more people are surviving a diagnosis of cancer than ever before. Our aim is to help people do more than survive."
