Wednesday 20th May at 7.30pm 
Lifting the Lid on Cancer & Friendship


Hosted by Alice-May Purkiss (author of "Life, Lemons and Melons” and co-host of AfterThoughts34 podcast), let's get real about the effect of cancer on friendships. From the BFF who ghosts you, to the friend who offers you turmeric lattes, and then those magical unicorn friends who get it *exactly right*. We have invited Georgie Swallow (a Trekstock Young Adult Ambassador who has experienced cancer twice) and other young adults from our community to talk with sometimes brutal honesty about how to navigate through cancer with your friendships intact. With expert advice from Catherine Hood (Professor in Communications and Consultant in Psychosexual Medicine) and Glyn Harries (CLIC Sargent Social Worker for Essex).
