A LEADING cancer charity is hosting a free event in Birmingham for people with cancer and their close supporter.
Penny Brohn UK’s two-day Living Well event takes place at the HelpHarryHelpOthers Drop In Cancer Support Centre, 8 Midland Croft, Birmingham B33 0AW on 20 and 27 March, from 10am to 5.30pm.
The event, run in partnership with HelpHarryHelpOthers Drop In Cancer Support Centre, addresses cancer’s physical and psychological impact and shows how healthy eating, exercise and relaxation can improve health and wellbeing, before, during and after medical treatment.
Penny Brohn UK Living Well regional partnership manager Sophie Jones said: “Cancer can be overwhelming, but many small things can add up to make a big difference to the way people cope as they prepare for, undergo or recover from treatment.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Birmingham Cancer Support Centre to offer our Living Well event, which can enable people to take back some control of their lives.”
Georgie Moseley, Founder and CEO of HelpHarryHelpOthers (HHHO) Cancer Charity said: “We are delighted to welcome Penny Brohn UK and its Living Well Course to the Drop In Cancer Support Centre. HHHO focus on providing everything outside of treatment to improve the overall well-being of cancer patients and their families. The Living Well course run here by Penny Brohn UK will really complement the 17 services we offer on-site here at the centre. We are delighted to support Penny Brohn UK as ultimately both charities have the same vision of providing much needed support to those affected by cancer.”
A recent attendee added: “I highly recommend this to everyone with cancer and those supporting them.
“If anything, it was more valuable to my husband (I'm the one with cancer) – it gave him the opportunity to talk to others in the same situation.”
With over 38 years’ experience, Penny Brohn UK recognises that people with cancer need more than medicine.
Its Bristol Whole Life Approach provides integrated whole person cancer support that works alongside medical treatment to achieve the best health and wellbeing.
The approach explores areas such as diet, exercise, relationships and managing stress, through free residential and day courses, one-to-one therapies, groups and national helpline.
Living Well events are free and empower people with cancer and their supporters to rediscover their joy of living.
Places are limited and first come, first served.
