Cancer Care West are hosting two talks in June which may be of interest to cancer patients and their families.
On Monday June 11, Mr Eamonn Rogers, Consultant Urological Surgeon is giving a presentation on ‘Coping with Prostate Cancer’. Over the last year the centre has offered support to men coping with this diagnosis and it is clear that for some men, this diagnosis causes ongoing stress. We are delighted that Mr Rogers has agreed to give this talk which will provide people with an overview of coping with prostate cancer. We are hoping to set up a support group if people are interested in meeting on a once per month basis. This talk is free of charge and takes place at 8pm on Monday June 11 in the Cancer Support Centre at 72 Seamus Quirke Road, Westside, Galway.
On Monday June 18, Ms Cathy McCarthy is giving a talk ‘A Cancer Diagnosis – Choose Your Attitude and Change Your Life’. Cathy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and has written a book about her journey called ‘Not the Year You Had Planned’. It is full of practical help and the response of those who have read has been very positive. It is helpful to both patients and family members. If you are affected by cancer in any way, you may find this talk interesting. This talk is free of charge and takes place at 8pm on Monday June 18 in the Cancer Support Centre at 72 Seamus Quirke Road, Westside, Galway.
