A LEADING cancer charity is hosting a free support course in Titchfield for people with cancer and their close supporter.
Penny Brohn UK’s two-day Living Well course takes place at Breast Cancer Haven, The Square, on 19 and 26 October, from 10am to 5.15pm.
The course 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 Chris Riley 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.
“Our Living Well helps people take back some control of their lives.”
A recent course 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 37 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 courses are free and empower people with cancer and their supporters to rediscover their joy of living.
Places are limited and first come, first served.
