Maggie's Cancer Care Centres

Post by Kitkat on Wed 17 May 2017, 18:07

These centres offer tremendous support and care for cancer sufferers and their families and friends.  There are now many of these wonderful Centres throughout the UK, with a new one just recently opened at Barts Hospital.

This is the Newsletter from the West London one (attached to Charing Cross Hospital) - where I attended regularly following my second diagnosis/treatment.  Kudos to all the wonderful staff, volunteers and professionals involved in running these very special places.  happyheart

Your newsletter from Maggie's

As we enter our tenth year here at the West London Centre, with our gardens in full bloom and our orange walls glowing in the sun (most of the time!), we are looking forward to welcoming our new Centre Head Sinead Cope, who comes to us in July from Charing Cross Hospital.

At an exciting time for the Centre, with new chapters beginning and new faces in the team, we will of course be keeping our regular programme of support.

During the summer we will also be holding some informal evening events plus a very special Maggie’s to Maggie’s walk planned from Maggie's West London to the new Maggie's Barts. Keep up with all our events on Facebook or visit our website.

We hope you enjoy reading about what’s coming up and what has been going on, including a hugely fond farewell to Centre Head, Bernie, at our party on Friday 28 April.

Best wishes,
The Maggie's West London team
