April 2018

Group: Arriving at the Holiday Inn in the daylight for the first time this year resulted in an upbeat feel to our April meeting. It was great to welcome back Jaysee from her travels and Mauricette from her voyager, parcourir. Eve and Sue were attending for the first time and Lisa from the Breast Unit came along to take questions.

Q&A session: Subjects covered were the use of Tamoxifen and its effects on bone density, the drinking of green or white tea and soya products and their effects on breast cancer.

Discussions: We then all told Sue and Eve a little bit about our own experience’s and during this session discovered that a late newcomer – Anna, had never had Breast Cancer, she was in fact our speaker for the night!

Speaker Anna: Anna introduced herself to the group. She is a Beauty Therapist employed by Peterborough College and teaches massage at College in the evening and also baby massage at the Sure Start Centre. Tonight she was going to show us how to massage hand and arms

AOB: Carole said she and Gill were working on the leaflet, and Denise suggested we send out details about the Macmillan training via email, the rest will wait until next meeting and Val reminded everyone about tombola prizes for this year’s Strawberry Tea Fundraiser on  23rd June.
