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.
In 2013, Dr Karen Roberts, Macmillan Reader/ Nurse Consultant, Northumbria University, gave our keynote speaker on moving on after a diagnosis of cervical cancer.
The 2013 workshops covered:
- a session to Ask the Gynae-Oncologist
- becoming a parent after radical treatment
- bladder damage post cervical cancer treatment
- bowel damage post cervical cancer treatment
- early stage cervical cancer diagnosis
- fertility after LLETZ, cone biopsy and trachelectomy,
- recently diagnosed
- how to support your partner and yourself (a session for partners only).
