We are a new northern powerhouse of women who have been through and have recoverd from cancer. We have dropped calling ourselves a support group, because we are much more than that. A network that allows women to shape their own wellbeing through an holistic approach. A safe, non-judgemental and caring ethos which will help transform your life beyond CANCER! Please join us today - your journey starts here with Females:CAN.

Having been through cancer myself I was desperate to set something up for women. I myself was never refered to a 'group'and missed out on engaging with people who were going through what i was at the time.
With a small grant from Macmillan we invited women from all backgrounds to come and shape the start of a new network.
There you have it, Females:CAN was created: we are here, we exist, so please join us by calling 07935177562
A 6-month holistic approach to post-cancer living.
Please register today and receive a FREE goody bag.
Starting in June call 07935177562 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org

Yes, they do and there are not enough narratives from BAME communities. We need to know how people from the BAME communities are treated right from diagnosis to prognosis and beyond. They have a right to tell their story. This is merely the beginning not the end!
I want to have many interesting coverstaions with you all. Hope to speak to you soon. See advert for details on how to get in touch.
Massive thank you to BPH for lending me some 'sparebob'. I will now be in a position to develop my practice and do some much needed creative research into exploring cancer narratives.
