Have you or your loved one been impacted by a brain tumour diagnosis? Would you like a space to focus on boosting your wellbeing and an opportunity to connect with others who truly understand?
Join us at the beautiful Maggie’s Swansea building for an in-person workshop from brainstrust and a talk from Dr Jennifer Kahan, a clinical oncologist, on Monday 29th January at 3pm.
The workshop will be on the topic of “Behaviour and Personality Change”. Together, we will explore what behaviour change means and looks like, and discuss different strategies to cope.
Dr Jennifer Kahan, a clinical oncologist at Singleton Hospital, will also join us to talk about side effects and symptom management in relation to the brain tumour journey.
There will also of course be time to relax, connect and speak with others in the local community, over a cup of tea.
Please note: this is an in-person event for the local community, and it will not be available virtually, or recorded.
