About the Lifting the Lid series: 

Join Trekstock in 2020 to lift the lid on the realities of living with, and beyond, cancer and to talk friendship, exercise, menopause, sleep, anxiety and the experience of cancer in the LGBTQ+ and BAME communities. We’re bringing together an amazing line up of experts and young adults to have honest entertaining conversations about the topics that matter most.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 (commonly known as Coronavirus) situation, Trekstock is closely following the advice from the Government and NHS England.

Following the current guidelines to limit non-essential social contact, we are moving all our events on to a digital platform, or postponing if that is not possible. We will not be holding any in-person events until further notice. The health of the young adults we support is always our first priority.

We understand that this can be a worrying time for you so Trekstock will be providing as much guidance as possible. Please see the Advice on Coronavirus for People With Cancer document (produced by One Cancer Voice, a coalition of leading cancer charities) for answers to frequently asked questions. For the most up to date information, please check the advice from the UK Government: Coronavirus (COVID-19): UK Government Response and the NHS: Coronavirus (COVID-19), which will both be updated regularly.

The first page of this document also identifies some people with cancer who may be more at risk of becoming seriously ill if they contract the COVID-19 infection (commonly known as the Coronavirus). The Government's current advice is that people who would normally be advised to have the flu vaccine (such as those with chronic diseases) should take "particular care to minimise their social contact”, which may mean staying at home for the next 12 weeks from this weekend. You should speak to your Oncology team or Clinical Nurse Specialist if you have questions about your own medical situation.
