October 2019

Nurses: This month’s representatives from the PCH Specialist Care Nurse Team were Clare and Laura.

Book: One of our members shared with the Group a book she had read “Eat to Beat Disease” by Dr William Li.  She shared that the book looks at how diet can impact/effect cancer both pre and post diagnosis. "According to Dr William Li, the choices consumers make in terms of food are essential in living longer and healthier lives. While there are many foods that are deemed healthy, said label does not suffice. The expert claims that the key difference rests in how the body responds to what it’s being fed, and he defines good health as, “the result of the body’s defense systems.”

Xmas: The meeting continued and topics for discussion were the December meeting which is our Xmas celebration. Ideas were shared about activities for the event to include games, a photo-booth with props, secret Santa. It was agreed that as before the food would be a finger buffet (healthy) and Helen will sort out the menu with the Hotel.
Other Speakers: Members also requested that Stephen Duffy solicitor with Buckles Solicitors come back to the Group to talk about Wills, Trusts and Power of Attorneys. Helen confirmed she would ask him to attend our next meeting.
Sad News: Finally on a very sad note a founding member of the Group, Olive Thompson died on the 24th October 2019.  Denise will be sending condolences to the family from the Group.
