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.
This year we'll be talking about sex and relationships. Dr Tracie Miles (Gynaecology Oncology Nurse Specialist, Royal United Hospital, Bath) and Lynn Holmes (Gynaecology Oncology Nurse Specialist and sex therapist) will give our keynote presentation on sex and relationships after a diagnosis of cervical cancer.
We are planning to offer the following workshops:
- A session to Ask the Gynae-Oncologist
Early menopause and HRT
Financial implications and work after cancer
Bowel damage post cervical cancer treatment
- 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).
Health care professionals
Our information day, Let's Meet has been designed for women who have been affected by cervical cancer (each registered attendee is entitled to bring 1 adult guest). Therefore, we kindly request that health care professionals do not to sign up to attend Let’s Meet.
We are keen to hear from health care professionals who would be interested in attending an information day about the consequences of cervical cancer. If you would like to contact us please email firstname.lastname@example.org
