The East of England Cancer Alliance’s Patient Partnership Group would like to invite you to attend their online events.

The patient group have all experienced cancer themselves, or cared for someone with cancer, and are putting on a series of talks and information sessions designed to raise awareness and give people an opportunity to ask any questions of our expert speakers or experienced patients. We hope that you can join us.

Talking to children about cancer

Tuesday 9 July 2024 6-30 – 7.30pm.

An online event to learn more about talking to children about cancer. We will hear from Lisa Punt, Centre Head at Maggie’s Cambridge. Children often know when something serious is affecting the family and people they are close to. It is important to give them the chance to talk openly about their fears and worries. Trying to protect children from difficult news, worry and distress is natural. Lisa will talk about finding the right language, time, and place to talk to children about cancer. We will also hear from a member of the public about their experiences.

If you would like to view the presentation slides that accompanied the Let's Talk about Cancer, talking to children seminar, please do so by clicking on the presentation below. 

Here are the presentation slides that Pam gave at the 'Let’s talk about cancer - screening programmes and why they are important' talk on 30th January 2024. Pam has updated the presentation slides with answers to the questions that were raised at the event, and the ones in the chat that we didn’t have time to get answered at the event.
