Cancer forum on next week
Duhallow Women’s Forum is to host a free ovarian and breast cancer forum on Thursday week, October 5.
It will be held at 7.30pm at the James O’Keeffe Institute, Newmarket.
Speakers will explore breast cancer awareness – signs and symptoms; what supports are available and what to expect; what to say and what happens when someone you know gets a diagnosis. They will also focus on ovarian cancer – signs and symptoms; diagnosing and treating ovarian cancer and current research.
Another topic up for discussion is lifestyle choices – your health, your choice: how four in 10 cancers could be prevented if people make simple changes to their everyday life.
Speakers will be from Trinity College Dublin, Cork ARC Cancer Support House and the Marie Keating Foundation
