Patient & Carer Day 2020

Patient and Carer Day 2020

Friday 2nd October

Friday 2nd October saw us host our 15th annual Patient & Carer day. This year, due to COVID-19 we did it ‘virtually’ and were joined by almost 200 viewers.

It was a day of learning and sharing with others with similar experiences.

We’re grateful to our speakers who talked about the latest on mesothelioma clinical trials, treatments and research including Respublica’s Airtight On Asbestos project.  We were also lucky enough to be joined by Paul Cook, who talked about his mesothelioma journey and his plans for his charity, Erase Meso. Our nurses enjoyed hosting ‘virtual’ lunch breakout rooms which specifically discussed carers, peritoneal mesothelioma and thoracic surgery.

The event wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our sponsors, for which we are always grateful.

The video recording of the event will be available online shortly – keep an eye out on our social media. Thank you to everyone who tuned in, it was different but hopefully just as informative.
