Did you know there are around 190,000 people in Yorkshire living with or beyond a diagnosis of cancer? This number is set to grow in the coming years leaving even more people in our region to cope post-diagnosis.

This free event hosted by Yorkshire Cancer Research is a day for people across Yorkshire affected by cancer.

Patients, their carers and supporters are invited to join us for a day of advice and information to help you live better with and beyond cancer.

The programme includes:

  • The chance to find out about local support groups and support services across Yorkshire.
  • Short talks from cancer experts including researchers, healthcare professionals and those delivering cancer services.
  • A chance to ask questions to the experts.
  • Sharing experiences in discussions of issues that affect cancer patients, their carers and supporters.
  • Participation in practical sessions to aid your wellbeing – giving you skills to use in the future.

Registration has now closed.
