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, family or friends affected by cervical cancer called Let's Meet.
Let's Meet is a free to attend, one day information event. The day includes a key
note speaker, a series of workshops and time for attendees to mingle and connect with others. It ends with some women who have been affected sharing their stories and talking about how they have been involved with us.
The focus of this year's event will be practical support after diagnosis and treatment. We are looking to run workshops on navigating money, benefits and work, sex and intimacy, managing early menopause and HRT, PRD and the late effects of radiotherapy, hollistic relaxation sessions, and support for partners, amongst others.

In 2016 the keynote presentation was given by Professor Amanda Ramirez, Consultant Psychiatrist and Emeritus Professor of Liaison Psychiatry & Psycho-Oncology at King’s College London and Lead on Improving Patient Experience for Leaders in Oncology Care, who talked about the emotional impact that cervical cancer can have on you and ways to manage this.
On the day, we offered a number of workshops focusing on the theme of looking after your emotional wellbeing and life after a diagnosis of cervical cancer. These included: Ask the Gynae-Oncologist, sex and intimacy, early menopause and HRT, pelvic radiation disease, a workshop for partners only, a Gong bath relaxation session, laughter yoga, fertility for early stage cervical cancer and a special taster session from Look Good, Feel Better.
