Plymouth Bladder and Kidney Cancer Support Group!

Cancer doesn’t care about COVID-19. If you have received a diagnosis of either bladder or kidney cancer you may be feeling particularly alone at this time. Would you welcome some support from outside the hospital? . All of us in the group have been affected by these cancers, either as a patient or as one of their close family or friends. We are more than happy to support you. We may have had  different treatments, different reactions but we have all had a cancer diagnosis. We are happy to talk about our experiences if you wish.

In normal times the group meets at The Mustard Tree on the 2nd Monday of each month between 12.30pm and 1.30pm. We have talks by medical and other specialists but we also get out on walks and trips. Just now we can’t do that but we can still be contacted.

During COVID-19 restrictions, we meet every second Monday of the month at 19.00 for an hour to have a bit of a chit chat via Zoom. Please send me an email to receive the Zoom link for our meetings.

Right now we can be reached by e-mail at  bcsg.derriford@virginmedia.com
