A leading cancer charity is hosting a free support course in Croydon for people with cancer and their close supporter.
Penny Brohn UK’s two-day Living Well course takes place at Mayday, or Croydon University Hospital, on May 24 and 31, from 10am to 4.30pm.
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.
“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,” said Supriya More of Penny Brohn UK.
“Our Living Well helps people take back some control of their lives.”
A recent course attendee said: “I highly recommend this to everyone with cancer and those supporting them.
“I’m the one with cancer, but if anything, it was more valuable to my husband – it gave him the opportunity to talk to others in the same situation.”
With nearly 40 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.
Places on the Living Well course are limited and first come, first served. To attend the course you must book in advance by calling 0303 3000 118 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
