Get your skates on pals. Let's leave Zoom behind and head to the magical Kelvingrove Ice Rink on 27th November at 6pm for some festive fun. Meet others who get what life is like in the cancer lane and skate under the stars at the UK's biggest ice rink. We'll be the ones gripping onto the side for dear life.

Fancy it but a bit nervous about coming on your own? We get it. The more the merrier so why not bring along a friend to help...break the ice 🥁

Sorry to get all health & safety on you but please fill in this quick waiver form so we can make sure you're good to skate.


MEET YOUR HOSTS:

Nicola was diagnosed with Stage 2 cervical cancer in 2018. After finishing treatment she's now navigating early menopause and pelvic radiation disease so she knows how valuable it is to hang out with others who've had cancer, especially those who might also be experiencing these late effects from treatment. 

"When I was diagnosed I felt isolated from my peers. I was often the youngest person on the ward and at support groups by at least 20 years. I couldn't relate to others talking about early retirement and their grandkids. When I discovered Trekstock on Instagram a year out of treatment, it felt like everything I was feeling made sense and I had finally found my community. To be able to spend time with other young adults with the same experiences and worries was life-changing for me."
Grace was diagnosed with Stage 3 endometrial cancer at the end of 2019 and is now on immunotherapy. She loves being outdoors and getting into nature. She's an avid wild swimmer and loves getting out into Loch Lomond. She also loves getting out with her dog and is so grateful to live next to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
"I found Trekstock through Instagram and felt so grateful to have found an organisation that focuses on young adults. It felt very lonely to be the youngest face in the oncology centre. Every time I went, I hoped to see someone who was a similar age to me! I am really looking forward to the meet-up. One thing I’ve missed during the pandemic is having access to an in-person community of people who understand what it’s like to have gone through or live with a cancer diagnosis. I am also looking forward to getting to know Glasgow better as I live a little way out of the city."
