Workshop October 2017

Posted November 7, 2017, in

On the 14th of October 2017 saw Advanced Breast Cancer Group hold the regular Workshop for Women, Partners, Families and Friends. The workshop was a great success with many members and their family attending.

The day featured Dr Russell Richards, who is a Palliative Care Physician at the Mater Hospital. Dr Richards provided a great presentation on the benefits of Palliative Care and discussed the use of medicinal Marijuana as a possible form of pain relief.

ABCG workshop regular Dr Vikram Jain provided his insights into metastatic breast cancer and the current treatments available.

After lunch was a Creative session with Bernard Houston and Mircha Mangiacotti. Members of the group and staff were all required to bring an item that means a lot to them, or provides an insight into who they are. This was very well received by all and many great stories were told.

Part of the day was filmed for the ABC 7:30 programme, which can be seen here

Thanks to everyone for your participation in this.

And thank you to all those who attended and were involved in the organisation of such a great workshop.
