‘C’ for Conversation.

Cancer Week Ireland takes place this week, and to mark it, Strive Clinic is hosting a free event in the Clayton Hotel, tomorrow, Tuesday 26th September.

They are inviting anyone who is living with or beyond cancer to join them at 6.30pm to join in the conversation.

The event, titled “A Conversation about Cancer Rehabilitation” is open to the public and anyone can book free tickets here.

Cancer Week

The week is about opening up a national conversation about cancer and for communities and organisations, large and small, to be part of that conversation this September.

It is taking place between Monday, September 25th and Sunday, October 1st and it hopes to inspire every community to take part.

Cancer rehabilitation is medical care that aims to reduce the troubling effects and treatments so that people can reach their maximum potential and live the best quality of life possible.

A Conversation About Cancer Rehabilitation hopes to provide practical tips and tools to people living with or beyond cancer, along with their family members, friends or carers.

Strive Clinic say that those in attendance will leave with practical advice on how to manage troubling after-effects of cancer and its treatment.

The specialist team of cancer rehabilitation professionals from Strive Clinic will discuss the management of common issues such as fatigue, lymphoedema, memory & concentration problems, incontinence, speech & swallow problems, exercise tolerance and mental health challenges.

The event is taking place tomorrow, 26th, at Clayton Hotel, Ballybrit, Galway.

From 6.30pm – 7pm is Check-in & Tea/Coffee, and the panel discussion  about cancer rehabilitation will begin at 7.15pm and end at 9.15pm.

Initiated by the Irish Cancer Society and Trinity College Dublin, Cancer Week Ireland wants to start a national conversation about cancer.

The Irish Cancer Society said: “It is about getting everyone engaged in the issue of cancer and how we can prevent it, spot it earlier, improve treatment, and survive and thrive afterwards.”
