THE Primrose Hospice is opening its doors to breast cancer survivors from Bromsgrove and Redditch at a special informal event between 3.30pm and 6pm a week on Monday (June 18).
The survivorship scheme will see those who are on the road to recovery from the disease have access to a team of qualified and experienced therapists, counsellors and advisers.
And there will also be a host of other experts on hand to offer help and support and to highlight the range of services available to breast cancer survivors.
Mandy Batten and Julie Weston are breast care nurses at Redditch’s Alexandra Hospital.
They said: “The recovery from breast cancer can be almost as traumatic as treating the disease itself.
“Survivors can have serious concerns about issues like their future health, their emotional wellbeing, their relationships or their financial and employment position.”
Heather Coughlin, the head of the the Primrose Hospice’s Family Support Team, also stressed the importance of survivorship schemes, such as this, for those recovering from breast cancer.
“Our survivors’ day is bringing together a team of experts in these areas to help breast cancer survivors get on with the rest of their lives.”
All breast cancer survivors are welcome to the event on June 18 and refreshments will be provided.
For more, call Charlie Dean on 01527 871051.
