A meeting for patients, carers and families to talk about Peritoneal Malignancy.

 I’m pleased to announce that the Pelican cancer foundation at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital are again running a meeting for patients, carers and families who are affected by Peritoneal Malignancy.

The event is being held at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital’s Ark Conferencing Centre on the 10th December between 1and 5pm. The event is FREE to attend but there are limited spaces available so YOU WILL NEED TO BOOK YOUR SPACE. Call Pelican on 01256 314746.

 As with the last event talks will be held by Dr. Paul Sugarbaker along with surgeons and nurses from the Basingstoke Malignancy Institute.

Break-out sessions are again being held covering the following topics-

  • ·         Developments in research.
  • ·         Psychological effects of surgery.
  • ·         Post Operative bowel function.
  • ·         Patient follow- up.

When booking your place you will again need to indicate which breakout session you wish to attend.
I can’t shout loud enough to say what a great event this is. If you have been affected by Peritoneal Malignancy then I can strongly advise attending to get the very best and most up to date information from some of the leading experts in the world on this subject.

It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow PMP sufferers and carers face to face and share stories and experiences and to offer support and hope to the newly diagnosed.

Unfortunately this year I am unable to attend due to family commitments and will miss seeing you all again.

Below is the official flyer for the event.
