‘Living Well Exhibition’ for people living with and beyond cancer - 02 March 2016

Musgrove Park Hospital’s Beacon Centre invites anyone affected by cancer to their ‘Living Well Exhibition’ at the Genesis Centre, Somerset College, Taunton, on Saturday 12 March, from 10am to 1.30pm.

There will be a programme of presentations and demonstrations in the venue’s auditorium, with bookings taken on the day. Visitors can find out about local support organisations, volunteering prospects, and hobby, exercise and activity groups. There will also be an opportunity to sample some of the activities and services displayed.

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 help them enjoy the fullest of lifestyles.

“A cancer diagnosis is a life changing event that 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 to enjoy a quality of life following a diagnosis of cancer.”

Free parking for the Living Well Exhibition will be available on the Somerset College campus. And visitors who complete the feedback form at the event will be in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher for delicious organic vegetables, kindly donated by Riverford Organic Farms.

Visitors are encouraged to drop in at any time during the event, to find out more about local help and support available to anyone affected by cancer.

Musgrove’s Beacon Centre provides cancer treatment to people living in Somerset and the surrounding area. It enables approximately 1,200 cancer patients each year to have their treatment more locally, so that they don’t have to travel the long distance to Bristol for their radiotherapy treatment.
