Mini Meet 2018

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust Mini Meet

An event for women living with and beyond cervical cancer.

What is Mini Meet?

Mini Meet is an opportunity to meet other women in your area who have had a cervical cancer diagnosis. Our annual event Let’s Meet is extremely popular every year and we are now running smaller, local get-togethers to ensure as many women as possible have the opportunity to attend an event.

Mini Meet is a chance for women and their loved ones to connect with others, share experiences and get answers to their questions in a relaxed and supportive environment. Whether you have attended Let’s Meet or a previous Mini Meet or are joining for the first time, we would love you to join us at one of our upcoming events.

“[The best thing was] learning that other people are going through the same things whether physical or psychological”

In Birmingham we had a Q&A session with a Gynaecological Oncologist and ran sessions on sex and intimacy, menopause and HRT, fertility and, pelvic radiation disease, all providing attendees with the chance to learn from our experts, talk through any concerns and hear from other ladies about their experiences and coping strategies.

"Thank you for a great supportive day it has really helped me to move in the direction I need help with now"

"I was able to talk about issues without fear or judgement"

All of our Mini Meet events follow a similar format so please take a look below to see what is on offer.

Mini Meet events include an Ask the Gynae-Oncologist session, two workshops, lunch, and time for attendees to connect with each other. 

Attendees can choose two workshops from the following list:

  • Sex and intimacy changes after cervical cancer: 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.
  • Early Diagnosis and Fertility: a chance to talk about issues of fertility after treatment for cervical cancer.
  • 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.
  • 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.

There are not currently any Mini Meet dates, but keep an eye on this page for updates.
