What should I do about preventing a recurrence of cancer?

If you have already been diagnosed with cancer, then it probably will have made a huge impact on your life already. Cancer can be the catalyst to change your life for the better, and we can give help and advice about this.

What help can you offer groups on cancer prevention?

We are a bit of a social club, people coming together who have shared the same experiences – the trauma of a diagnosis, treatment and side effects. There is lots of chatting going on during the meetings – lots of laughter – a bit of exercise which is optional and then a discussion about what is on the social agenda as well as our vision and plans for the future. Sometimes we have guest speakers on a range of topics – largely not cancer!!!

My company might be interested in starting a 'healthier life' group. Can you help us with that?

We are very keen to inspire companies to support their employees, by encouraging them to join together to create a health culture. We are happy to make a presentation to the organisation about the favourableand practical benefits creating a healthy culture can bring to the business as a whole. We can offer help, advice, and support, to staff and management, to ensure that the aspiration becomes a successful reality, with a genuinely positive impact on the business.

What would that cost the organisation?

We would offer this service free in exchange for some form of financial commitment from the company, and/or the employees i.e. a team fund raising event, donation, or sponsorship programme.

Creating a new energised internal culture within an organisation can actually be a neutral or even positive cost exercise. Behaviourable transformation often brings about extraordinary step-changes in working and lifestyle philosophy, often leading to improved productivity, positive outlook and greater social awareness.

Outside the organisation, the perception of the company and its personnel is acutely enhanced, being viewed more favourably within its local community, and perhaps most importantly, with its existing and proposed new customers.
