‘Living Well Exhibition’ for People Living With and Beyond Cancer - 25 February 2015

‘Living Well Exhibition’ for People Living With and Beyond Cancer - 25 February 2015

Musgrove Park Hospital’s Cancer Centre, the Beacon Centre, invites you to their ‘Living Well Exhibition’ at the Somerset County Cricket Club on Saturday, 7 March 2015.

The event is aimed at people living with and beyond cancer. With the number of people living with and beyond cancer set to double nationally to four million by 2030, it is becoming vitally important that we support and encourage those affected by cancer, to self-manage their own health and wellbeing in the best way possible.  

With this aim in mind the Beacon Centre at Musgrove Park Hospital are holding their own Living Well Exhibition on Saturday, 7 March 2015, at the Somerset County Cricket Ground in Taunton, from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

Musgrove’s colorectal cancer nurse specialists, Nicky Forsyth and Maria Salter, said: “The exhibition is an ideal opportunity for people to gain advice, guidance and information on living with or beyond a cancer diagnosis to enjoy the fullest of lifestyles.

“A cancer diagnosis is a life changing event and often forces a reassessment of life and the choices we make. The Living Well Exhibition is aimed at supporting people living with and beyond cancer through these changes, and helping them enjoy a quality of life following a diagnosis of cancer.”

The exhibition will also offer visitors the opportunity to gather information and ideas about organisations and community services that they may have been unaware could help support them in their lives, whether they are living with cancer or have fought the battle against it.

There is no formal programme to the exhibition, which allows visitors to simply drop in and gather as much information as they would like. Some of the stands at the event will provide details on local hobby groups, volunteering opportunities as well as signpost local exercise and activity groups available.

Musgrove Park Hospital’s Living Well Exhibition has also teamed up with Riverford Organic Farms, to offer visitors who complete the feedback form at the event the opportunity to win a delicious organic vegbox worth £50.

If you know of someone who has been affected by cancer, then please encourage them to drop into the exhibition between 10.30am and 2.30pm on Saturday, 7 March 2015.
