At the DoubleTree, Manchester
Connect with others affected, learn more about issues related to cervical cancer and share your experiences
The support of our friends and family can play a key role in how we get through being diagnosed and treatment. However, there is nothing quite like talking to someone who is going through the same thing. One of our key aims is to provide women affected by cervical cancer with an opportunity to meet others in similar situations. Once a year we organise an event for women and their partners affected by cervical cancer called Let's Meet.
Let’s Meet is a one day information event which includes a key note speaker, a series of workshops and time for attendees to mingle and meet others affected. The day is free to attend.
At Let's Meet 2014, Dr Tracie Miles (Gynaecology Oncology Nurse Specialist, Royal United Hospital, Bath) and Lynn Holmes (Gynaecology Oncology Nurse Specialist and sex therapist) gave our keynote presentation on life after a diagnosis of cervical cancer.
We ran the following workshops:
- A session to Ask the Gynae-Oncologist
- Early menopause and HRT
- Financial implications and work after cancer
- Pelvic radiation damage
- Early stage cervical cancer diagnosis
- Fertility after LLETZ, cone biopsy and trachelectomy,
- Recently diagnosed
- Sex Q&A
- A workshop for partners of women who have been affected by cervical cancer (a session for partners only).
Contact us for more information on [email protected] or register your interest for the event.
Let's Meet has been kindly supported by the Tugwell family, in memory of Angela Tugwell.
