There's a chance to meet up in Cardiff on Monday 12 May. I've posted up an image of the official flyer, and pasted below the joining details. The event is suitable for women who have experience of ovarian cancer. It's not restricted to women in Wales but open to anyone for whom Cardiff is an accessible location. There is also a Get-Together Day in Swansea on Tuesday 13 May which you can book by contacting Target.

  • Yey!!!!! xx

  • Me too - many thanks Annie. It sounds like a really good day.


  • Hello Alice, Do you live near Cardiff? If so there's also a support group that meets once a month.

    There used to be a facility on HU which showed members in your area. I'm really sorry that's gone as I found it a great way of making contact with women in my area. In fact that's how we got the support group going in the first place.

    Quite a few ladies on this site have been to the Target days and have really enjoyed them.

    xx love Annie

  • hahaha just found out who you are!

  • Wonderful! This is something lve longed for! I am in Swansea so looking forward to meeting others and a good day. Have a good day in Cardiff.x

  • Have you got the joining form for Swansea? I've heard bookings are looking good for your day. I think I'm meant to be coming along to meet you all. Let's hope I have the energy for that!!!! xxx

  • Thanks lve rung to book. They are sending paperwork. Wishing you huge strengthan hope to meet you!.

  • Dear Whippet, This is similar to the Patient Days that Ovacare organise in Ireland, and also the more informal coffee mornings. I have met some wonderful women, and what is so upsetting that they are so young compared to me. Hope you have a good turnout for the day. Best wishes, Daisies.

  • Thanks Daisies. I'm going along to our local cancer centre with a display to demonstrate this site as well as publicise the Target Day. Bookings have been slow but let's hope all women with ovarian cancer hear about it and if they want to join in they register. It can be a very lonely disease.

    Love Annie xxxx

  • I'll be there!

  • Fab! I'll add you to the guest list Sunday!!!

  • Me, too! Thank you for posting the flyer, Annie - I'd completely forgotten about booking a place xxx

  • It's complicated isn't it!!!! xx

  • 1984 shan yes I would like to come

  • Dear Shan, Please just come along. Do you know where the Parc Thistle Hotel is in Cardiff. I'll send you a PM as it's too late to get in touch with Target now. Not too late for you to join us though. I'll let you have my personal contact details so we can be in touch. xxxx

  • Just an update on last week's Being Together Day in Cardiff. A great turnout of about 30 women and a thoroughly enjoyable day with the opportunity to meet some friends from this forum and new people who have not used an online support forum.

    It was followed on the Wednesday by a Patient Focus Group to evaluate cancer services in Wales as a result of the 6-year Cancer Plan 2008. Both events were great networking opportunities and really helpful. There was unanimous feedback from everyone at the focus group that a postcode lottery for drugs and treatment is unacceptable.
