Coffee mornings

Do any of you attend coffee mornings or gatherings in the London or Kent area?

I went to a Target Ovarian Cancer day March 2015, but nothing since and it would be nice to meet up with some of the ladies who have been posting as they do in Ireland.

Hi Carole, maybe Ovacome may organise similar events in London. It is certainly an idea and it is great to meet up and chat and exchange stories and have a few laughs along the way. I know Womb Cancer Support do have meet ups but mostly around the Bermingham area and perhaps once a year. I would suggest you contact your Macmillan nurse and make this suggestion and hopefully something good would come out of it. Ovacare funds the coffee mornings and Patient Information Days here. Maybe its worth contact ing Ovacome to see if it is feasible. I hope you get some positive answers and that you may find women with OC in your area.

Ovacome have a Members' Day coming up very soon.... I think early March. Have a look on their website for more info. Also worth having a look at Maggie's centres throughout the UK as lots happening at these. Target also have a list of smaller support groups in all areas...

Best wishes, Sx

Thanks S,

I will definately look into that,hope you are well,

Hi Carole so sorry about the lack of info, my little beast is back and husband going through chemo for a stem cell transplant next week but I will dig out the info for you. It is one of my cns nurses that runs the group and I will be having a lot more contact with her soon😳 I haven't been for a while but it's worth a try my onc and my surgeon both gave talks and answered questions it was very worth while xxxxAnn
