Linda informed group about an Art Exhibition by Romsey-based artist, Wendy Forrest-Charde, depicting her journey through cancer, on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th February between 10am and 4pm at the Wessex Cancer Trust in Chandlers Ford.
Jane Bulloch gave us a useful and practical presentation.
We don’t need to join a gym to improve our fitness as there are lots of exercises we can do at home.
Some suggestions for Strength Training
– Sit on a chair and stand up
– Half sit and stand
– Walk up and down a step
We had Jane Bulloch from CanRecover who gave a really interesting presentation followed by some simple exercises we can all do. She said 30mins of exercise a day brings tremendous benefits.

Nice Chill & Chat meeting where Jackie & Sandie gave feedback on attending two Macmillan Events, one in Winchester for cancer patients & one in Basingstoke for support groups. A full report will be given after our Chandlers Ford meeting but we wanted to inform the group that there is another cancer patients event on 12th November in Andover & we passed around leaflets for anyone interested in going as last ones were not well enough advertised. Jackie will set up a stand in Andover.
Our other discussions were on menopausal side effects after treatment and natural skin creams & toiletries.
