Yes to Life is delighted to announce that Sheila Dillon, Radio 4's Food Programme presenter will host a ground-breaking seminar on breast cancer headlined by Dr Francisco Contreras, Director and President of the Oasis of Hope Hospital in Mexico.
Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with incidence rates having increased by 70% since the mid-1970’s. Although survival rates have been improving, in 2011 in the UK, around 11,700 women died from breast cancer (that’s around 32 per day).*
The seminar will look at ways to support a weakened immune system; taking an integrative approach to breast cancer care; and therapies for supporting the body through breast cancer and standard treatments.
Joining Dr Contreras will be :
- Dr Siegfried Trefzer from High Tree Medical Clinic;
- Dr Stefan Geider from Camphill Medical Practice NHS, Aberdeen;
- Barbara Gallani who will demonstrate the importance of exercise and, in particular, yoga
- Two inspirational women will share their personal journey of recovery from breast cancer
- Ted Poulter, a physical activity and public health expert and a member of the Macmillan expert advisory group on a physical activity
Question and Answer sessions will be held during the day and there will be an opportunity to meet the speakers during refreshments and lunch.
The seminar is aimed at the general public, health care professionals, carers, complementary therapists, and anyone with an interest in breast cancer.
