Event description
Wigwam is a group of people affected by cancer coming together to share experiences and information. A space to talk. Carers are welcome.

About this Event

Wigwam is a cancer support group with a difference. It is a community of people coming together for mutual support and to explore and share information about lifestyle and cancer care choices. It maybe that we want to explore a more integrative approach to our cancer treatment; we are struggling with the fear of the cancer returning or we want support with talking to friends and family.

We meet in the morning of the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month and we agree between us the approach for the sessions. We may decide on discussion topics like questions for your oncologist, supplements to boost the immune system, exercise... we may invite outside speakers. There will be opportunities for mindfulness practice. This is your group - every individual has a voice.

The group is being facilitated by two people who have experienced the stress and life changing impact of a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Clare McLusky went through treatment for cancer in 2005. She is an occupational therapist and mindfulness teacher and experienced in running groups. Richard Mayon-White, who was a doctor, had cancer in 2016 and his wife died of cancer in 2011.

Wigwam is a new initiative created and supported by the UK's integrative cancer care charity Yes to Life. For more than a decade, Yes to Life has provided support to people with cancer through the confusing options for care. It offers straightforward evidence-based information on Integrative Medicine - this is using the best of both conventional and lifestyle medicine.

We look forward to meeting you and creating the way forward for the sessions.
