The Belfast cervical cancer support group is run by Michelle Roe, a cervical cancer survivor.
I had stage 2b cervical cancer in April 2011, I had hysterectomy closely followed with chemoradiation and brachytherapy. I'm now in remission and know how it feels to have a dreaded cancer diagnosis, the ups, downs, highs and lows it brings! So when I heard Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust were looking to raise awareness and provide a support group in my home town I was delighted and offered my help... I went for a training weekend to learn all we could and meet the other volunteers.
About the group
It's great to meet other women who have been affected by cervical cancer and to offer friendly support and a hug if needed. We would love to welcome new women to the group, whether in or out of treatment, as everyone's journey is different and we all have something to offer each other.
We're looking forward to meeting fellow sufferers and survivors at our group which is held in Belfast city centre. Our group is an informal meeting where women chat about there own experience of cancer. And, at the request of the women in the group, we hope to have people coming to give chats on menopause, sexual difficulties after treatment and a nutrition to give us tips on healthy eating. We have also had one of our local consultants attend a recent meeting to answer questions.
If you're looking to meet others who have gone through something similar and make new friends in the area, we'd love to hear from you.
