Jo’s Information and Support events: Mini Meet Belfast 2020

Hi everyone,

 

Here at Jo’s we organise information and support events for those living with and after cervical cancer. These events are free for you to attend, and you're also very welcome to bring along a supportive friend, partner or family member. Whether you’ve been recently diagnosed, or had cervical cancer many years ago, this event is open to you - whatever stage you're at, or whatever treatment you have received.

 

For 2020 we are holding three information and support days. Two that we call Mini Meet, as they are half day events, and our long standing Let’s Meet (12/09/20). Our Mini Meets will be held in Newcastle on 14th March and Belfast on 2nd May. The event will be a mixture of sessions run by health care professionals as well as plenty of time for you to meet other women and their loved ones who have been affected by cervical cancer. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.

Attendees can choose three workshops from the following list:

  • Ask the Gynae-Oncologist: this group interactive session allows you or your loved one to ask any questions relating to your diagnosis and/or treatment.
  • Early menopause and HRT: this session provides an overview of the menopause and the facts about HRT, as well as other treatments for treating menopausal symptoms.
  • Looking after your mental health: this session explores the anxiety and emotional issues that can happen after a cancer diagnosis, and looks at the psychological issues that can arise at the end of cancer treatment.
  • Pelvic Radiation Disease: this session provides time to address the late effects that can happen as a result of chemo-radiotherapy and talk about ways to manage the problems that you may be having.
  • Psychosexual issues following a cervical cancer diagnosis: this session allows for a discussion on the different sex and intimacy issues that can occur after diagnosis and treatment, and some hints and tips to help.
