Purpose of Group
The group is for people that have experienced life with cancer whether as patient, partner, family member, carer or friend.
If you have had cancer or recently been diagnosed, going through treatment or know someone who has and need someone to talk to, there is no need to go through this on your own.
Support from family and friends is vital, but sharing experiences with other cancer survivors can offer a different emotional help and that is where the support group is an added advantage. Talking with people who have been through a similar experience may help you adjust to your situation and let you know there is a life after a cancer diagnosis.
Where & When
We hold monthly meetings in the Red Cross Centre in Lochgilphead. We meet on the 2nd Monday of each month from 7 – 9pm.
We also hold informal coffee afternoons each Wednesday from 2 – 3:00pm at the “Rumblin’ Tums Cafe” , in Ardrishaig. Why not come along and have a chat.
We are a support/self help group. The group is free and open to all those affected by cancer.
We try to provide topics of interest at our regular monthly meetings. We wish to promote the interests of everyone in the group.
We also acquired books on anticancer foods and how to adjust our diet to help prevent and fight tumours. Please ask if you wish to borrow a copy of:
Anticancer A New Way Of Life
We promote cancer awareness within the community and work with other organisations and charities and help with fund raising.
Not everyone likes to join groups and come along to meetings and if you do not wish to do so you can still keep in touch by receiving monthly newsletters. The newsletter covers the group activities from the previous month and informs us of future events and other topics of interest.
