May 2018


Group: Denise welcomed everyone to our May meeting and as an introduction to Charlotte and Sarah, who were attending for the first time, we all said something about ourselves.

Denise also welcomed our Breast Care Specialist Nurse Claire Hall and thanked her for attending tonight to take any questions and asked for her opinion on the group providing mentoring for women going through treatment at the hospital. Rosemary said she had found out quite a lot from other patients when she was going through  treatment which had helped her enormously and felt we could  play a part in helping other women with their concerns.

Casting for Recovery: Mauricette told us about her trip to the Lake District to learn fly fishing as a means of recovering from Breast Cancer. She would highly recommend others to go. They run 6 sessions a year and provide the accommodation, food, equipment, clothing and one to one tuition. All she had had to do was travel to the venue and take her own wellingtons.
