A support group is a great way to talk about your cancer experience with other women who are on a similar journey. It provides a safe place to express your fears and concerns without upsetting loved ones. It is also a great place to learn how others cope in various situations. For example, managing your energy levels, getting through chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment or wellness tips for recovery.
The Eat Move Glow Cancer Support Group that is taking place on Wednesday 1st March, is a positive environment were women can share their wellness tips. They can provide ideas to others on what they are currently doing to manage treatment or how they are coping with recovery. With so much information on the web, in books and provided by other people who have not experienced cancer, this support group is a great way to listen to other women who are on a similar journey.
If you are reading this and have experienced cancer you will know that the people who love and support you have the best intentions. They want to do whatever they can to make your life easy. They may supply you with lots of information they Googled or buy you lots of supplements they heard helped manage side-effects. They are helpless and are trying their best but unfortunately this can cause you stress. You may feel like you are alone because nobody understands. This is so true. Unless you actually experience the fear of cancer personally, it is hard to fully understand what someone is going through.
This is the reason for the Eat Move Glow Cancer Support Group. We don’t want you to feel alone or stressed. We want to provide a positive environment were you can laugh, cry, shout and scream about cancer amongst women who GET IT. We also want to create a space were women can share tips, tricks and tools to manage the cancer experience. We want you to feel supported. You are not alone.
The first Cancer Support Group is on Wednesday 1st March, 13:00-15:00, at The Locksbrook Inn, Bath. Led by Laura Phillips, the focus of the first group will be sharing nutrition tips to manage treatment and recovery. We hope you feel comfortable to join the support group. We would love to see you.
