Living well with Mesothelioma - Patients & Carers Support Group 

“Nothing to lose but everything to gain”


Patient and Carer Support Group

Mesothelioma UK and Asbestos Support Central England have set up a support group for people with mesothelioma and those who care for them. The sessions will provide an opportunity 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.

9th October 2017 - “Mesothelioma UK and your support group”. Lorraine Creech, Mesothelioma UK.
