BCNI team members attended the ICS annual cancer suvivorship conference in Galway on 15th Sept.
The annual national conference is an essential part of the Irish Cancer Society's work and aims to provide information and support to enable people to live well after a cancer diagnosis. It is aimed at cancer survivors, those who care for them, health care professionals, and staff and volunteers from community-based cancer support services. The conference provides information and support to enable people to live well after a cancer diagnosis, and approximately 400 people attended the Galway event.
There was a range of speakers who shared their experiences, stories and expert knowledge and there were two practical workshops sessions. Attendees had the option to choose from topics such as exercise, diet, mindfulness, employment and much, much more. There was also an exhibition area showcasing a diverse selection of educational and practical exhibitors as well as representatives from local cancer support services.
BCNI had a stand in the exhibition area and we were delighted to meet patients and their families and let them know about the work BCNI is doing to bring new treatments to blood cancer patients and to facilitate reseach into blood cancers.
