Chris (Darragh) and I met another lady last week and we've fixed the date and time of the first meeting of the SE Wales Ovarian Cancer Support Group.
The meetings will take place on the last Wednesday of every month at Churchills Hotel, Cardiff at 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Our first meeting will be an informal coffee and chat to find out what women want from a support group. Hopefully we'll be setting up a mixed programme of monthly meetings including informal sessions and lunch meetings for women with Ovarian Cancer, and meetings with guest speakers or activities for members, families and friends.
It was a great help to have Angela advising us. She isn't a member of Ovacome and doesn't have access to a computer or email. It made us all the more determined to set up a series of meetings as a complement to the HealthUnlocked site for women who feel more confident with face-to-face contact. Angela has great contacts with the local press so we're hoping we can draw on her expertise to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer through the local media, we're looking to develop fundraising ideas, and at the heart of it all, we're looking forward to developing new friendships.
Our first meeting will be:
11:00 - 12:30 - Wednesday 27 March 2013
Churchills Hotel, Cardiff Road, Cardiff, CF5 2AE
