The Pink place is a registered charity that provides free wellbeing services and support to adults affected by cancer. The Pink Place volunteers often find that their guests ask clinical questions regarding their cancer or treatment that cannot be answered in house. Putting our heads together, we came up with the idea of hosting an evening that focused on symptom management.
Guests had the opportunity to ask our Cancer Specialist Nurses clinical questions about symptoms they were experiencing because of their cancer or treatment, such as:
- Nutrition advice for putting on weight
- Managing memory loss at work (chemo-brain)
- Post-surgery support network and coping with loneliness
- Wound care and hair loss post treatment
