Living well with Mesothelioma - Patients & Carers Support Group

   “Nothing to lose but everything to gain”

 Mesothelioma UK and the Greater Manchester Asbestos Victims Support Group (GMAVSG) have set up a support group for people with mesothelioma and those who care for them.  The sessions are a chance to meet others who understand what you are going through and to learn more about mesothelioma and the help that is out there. 

Some sessions will offer the chance to try complementary therapies and to learn techniques to help you cope with the effects of mesothelioma.  Sessions are free of charge and refreshments are provided.

Join us every first Monday of the month from 1.30pm to 3.30pm - see dates of future meetings and venue details below.
