Cancer sufferers invited to pamper sessions

Have your say

ANYONE undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy or other cancer treatments is being invited to ‘Look Good, Feel Better’.

The Hospice Isle of Man initiative aims to support and improve a person’s wellbeing through pampering therapy treatment carried out in an informal and relaxed environment.

The sessions are designed to be fun and to boost confidence.

The two week programme can teach participants how to manage the visible side-effects of treatments, increase their confidence, self-esteem and learn how to relax and enjoy life!

Established in May last year, 56 people have already benefited.

The programme runs on a Thursday evenings throughout the year starting tomorrow (March 14) March 21; July 11 and 18; September 19 and 26; November 21 and 28.

For more information contact Wendy Smith, day unit manager, the Scholl Centre, Hospice Isle of Man, Strang, Douglas, on 647426.
