Let's Meet

Our Let's Meet support and information event usually takes place over one day in London, for patients and their loved ones who have been affected by cervical cancer. However, with the current situation, an event in person won't be possible this year. 

We don’t want you to miss out this year though so, instead, we are really excited to be holding a virtual Let’s Meet, which will take place over a week. Read on to find out more about how it’s working this year.

What is Let's Meet?

Let's Meet is our annual informal information and support event for women affected by cervical cancer and their loved ones. It provides an opportunity to share experiences, get answers to your questions and learn from our speakers.

The event covers all aspects of living with and beyond a diagnosis, including your physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing. The support of family and friends plays a key role in how we get through a cervical cancer diagnosis and treatment, but there is nothing quite like talking to someone who is going through the same thing. We want to give those affected by cervical cancer a chance to do that. Each year, we see new and familiar faces come together in this supportive community.

Whether you have just been diagnosed or were diagnosed many years ago, Let’s Meet is for you, providing a safe place to connect with others and talk about your experience.

Our first virtual Let’s Meet

Join us from 21 - 25 September 2020 for a chance to listen to some amazing speakers and connect with others. We will be holding a different session each day of the week. You are able to sign up to as many or as few sessions as you would like. The sessions will be held on a webinar platform (which we will make as technologically simple as possible!)

We know this is different to how we would normally see you all for Let’s Meet, but we really hope to “see” as many of you as possible for what we hope proves to be a great week. 

The workshops on offer are: 

  • Monday 21st September, 12.20 - 13.30: Looking After Your Mental Health
  • Tuesday 22nd September, 12.20 - 13.30: Let’s Talk (facilitated discussion with the Jo’s Trust Support Team)
  • Wednesday 23rd September, time TBC: Partners Let’s Talk (facilitated discussion run by a partner of someone who has had a cervical cancer diagnosis)
  • Thursday 24th September, 12.20 - 13.30: Sex and Intimacy
  • Friday 25th September, 12.20 - 13.30: Gong Bath Relaxation 

All sessions are an hour long and will be run over a lunch hour, except for the patners session which will be in the evening.

Why go virtual?

Firstly, we absolutely love running Let’s Meet and we know that those who attend find it extremely useful. So we didn’t want anyone to miss out this year – we just have to adapt a little! We know that the prospect of attending a virtual event might seem a little strange at first. Here are some benefits of a virtual event which we hope might encourage you.

  • The format is a bit different – but nothing about the event has really changed. You’ll still have the same level of support from us, the same fantastic quality of speakers, the same chance to ask any questions, and the same opportunities to speak to each other and get to know the other attendees.
  • If you don’t live in London, or can’t get there easily, and you’ve missed out on Let’s Meet events before, a virtual event might suit you better
  • If you find events like this a bit daunting, you can keep your camera turned off and still join in
  • You can choose to only attend one session, or attend all five – it’s up to you!

Are you a healthcare professional?

Let's Meet is our annual event for women who have been affected by cervical cancer (each registered attendee can bring 1 adult guest). We would be extremely grateful if you could help us make the day a success by making your patients aware of it by sharing this page.
