Cancer charity launches new ‘Living Well’ service across England. Penny Brohn Cancer Care has been supporting people living with the impact of cancer for over 30 years from their National Centre in Bristol.
This year marks a new beginning for the charity as it begins to offer its ‘Living Well’ course to cancer patients and their supporters in communities across England; with the first courses in the South West being launched in Gloucestershire. The first 3-day ‘Living Well with the impact of cancer’ course in the South West was successfully delivered in Cheltenham during November and more are being planned across the region for 2013.
The ‘Living Well’ course offers peer support, self-help tools and enables those over the age of 18 diagnosed with cancer and their supporters to explore which lifestyle choices are right for them.
‘Living Well’ attendees have the opportunity to:
- Find out about eating well to enhance their health
- Learn simple techniques to help them relax and manage their stress
- Discover which physical activities can benefit them
Penny Brohn Cancer Care are able to provide their services free of charge, thanks entirely to the charitable donations and voluntary contributions which fund their work.
