* RETURN OF MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUP*
We are delighted that our monthly support group will re-start on Saturday 3rd July from 10-11am.
To ensure we comply with social distancing and current guidelines, our meetings will currently be held at the new venue of Newclose Cricket Club, Newport, where there is plenty of parking and an outside space if the weather is kind.
The group is open to anyone who has been affected by a brain tumour, whether you are a patient, a family member, a friend or a carer. All are welcome.
Going forward, our meetings will be held on the first Thursday of every month, 6-7pm at Newclose.
5th August 7th October 2nd December
2nd September 4th November 6th January 2022
Please contact us for further information.
We aim to provide a confidential and supportive environment where patients, family members and carers can come along for an informal chat, advice from a qualified counsellor, share their own experiences or simply to have a cup of coffee and take time out.
We also work closely with the Wessex Cancer Trust, members may be able to access some of their services, which are offered free of charge, such as;
- Complementary therapies, such as massage, reiki, reflexology, Indian head massage, aromatherapy and counselling.
- Patient parking spaces at Cowes Red Jet Terminal.
- Transport; Daisy Bus from the Red Jet Terminal to Southampton General Hospital.
In most cases if you are reading this; you or a loved one may have just been diagnosed, are undergoing treatment or are living with the effects of a brain tumour
Living with a brain tumour is a challenge. It can challenge you as the patient, challenge your loved ones and challenge how you continue to live your life.
There are over 120 different types of brain tumour. Unsurprisingly the impact of each varies hugely and even the impact of the same tumour type varies significantly from one person to another.
We know that a brain tumour diagnosis is overwhelming, confusing and isolating. We know how challenging it is to find the information you need to understand your options, to take the best pathway for you and access the support you need to help you make that journey. We know what it’s like because we’ve been there too!
We look forward to seeing you.
