PUBLISHED: 18:00 17 October 2017
A new support group has been set up to support people affected by blood cancer.
The Bristol/WSM Haematology Support Group is a new initiative set up by Leukaemia Care, a national charity giving advice to people suffering from the illness.
The group’s first meeting will be held at Long Ashton Community Centre, in Keedwell Hill, from 5.30-7.30pm on November 8.
Nickey Bate, who organises Leukaemia Care’s support groups, said: “This new support group is a great opportunity for patients and their loved ones to meet others in a similar situation.
“We’re looking forward to the ongoing development of the Bristol/WSM support group.”
Leukaemia Care also offers a 24-hour helpline, nurse education days and carer conferences.
