AN EVENT held for those affected by cancer was a success last month.

The Living Well With And Beyond Cancer event took place in the afternoon at the Swanfield Community Centre.

St Richard’s Hospital and Macmillan Cancer Support teamed up to run the event for those affected by cancer in the Chichester area.

The event provided information for cancer patients and their families on finances and benefits, diet choices and medical services, as well as information on complementary therapies such as aromatherapy and reiki.

There was also advice on hand about emotional, psychological and relationship support, as well as a chance to chat with specialist nurses, and an opportunity to share experiences with others.

Representatives from CancerWise and Macmillan were at the event to give out information about what they do, and refreshments were available for visitors too.
