New element for support group meetings

The Younger Women’s Breast Cancer Support Group is now firmly re-established at our Support and Information Centre.

This year we are hoping to include an educational aspect to the group and have invited various speakers to join us.

On Wednesday January 13, FORCE Oncology Physiotherapist Louise Ballagher will discuss various aspects of appropriate exercise during and after treatment.

She will also advise the group about rehabilitation and exercise classes now set up at local centres around Devon thanks to FORCE.

On Wednesday March 9, FORCE Oncology Support Specialist Paul Grace, who works with children, young adults and families, will explore the impact of a cancer diagnosis on family members.

Communication with young people during these times can be difficult. During this session we will explore concerns and help members of the group identify strategies to help manage important conversations.
