LGBT Cancer event in the West Midlands

By on Saturday, October 10th, 2009

The  Macmillan Cancer Support working with Birmingham LGBT Community Trust are organizing an event to bring together people affected by cancer from LGBT communities across the West Midlands. The day will include speakers and consultations to ensure that the experiences of LGBT people are heard and help to improve the cancer support available in the region. Marilyn Meade-Brown, Community Networks Development Co-ordinator for Macmillan in the West Midlands said: “Macmillan provides practical, medical, emotional and financial help to people affected by cancer from the moment of diagnosis and throughout their cancer journey. We want to hear from LGBT people who have been affected by cancer as patients, carers, partners, family members, friends or colleagues. Your stories about your experience will help us to improve the support available in your area. Whoever you are and whatever your experience, now or in the past, we want to hear it.”

The event will take place on Saturday 17th October at BVSC, Digbeth, Birmingham and booking is essential. For further information and/or to book your place call Angela Savage : 01676 531722 or email: a.savage@macmillan.org.uk Please mention that Out With Cancer, in the United States, sent you.
