Our thanks to all the people affected by cancer who attended our Breast Cancer Health and Well-being Event in Newcastle yesterday.

It was organised by the Living with and Beyond Cancer team we fund and we hope the afternoon was an informative and positive experience.

And thank you to all the organisations who came along to offer their expert help and advice: Macmillan, Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust, Breast Cancer Care, Maggie’s, FACT, Look Good Feel Better, Nicola Jane and Active Newcastle.

Living with and Beyond Cancer provides support for anyone affected by cancer from initial diagnosis, through and beyond treatment to:

• Support to manage the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatment
• Look at ways to adjust lifestyle to remain as well as possible
• Support access to information, self-management groups and other services that can help

It is run in partnership with the Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust, local GP surgeries and is supported by Macmillan.
