Believe it or not, Headstart is going to have an event on the 28th August 2021 at our usual time of 10am.
Gina & Roger Wheeler (below with neighbours) who have been wonderful supporters of Headstart for years,
Gina Roger Robin Jan
have offered Headstart their garden for this event.
Not only that, but they are going to put up a marquee, with tables and chairs and refreshments for everyone. There is parking in their road and hopefully we can organise it so that those in a wheelchair will have access.
This is just so kind of them and shows you how much they would like to see Headstart getting together once again. It has been such a long time
All friends of Headstart are more than welcome to come along and join in, it will follow our usual format of a raffle and a quiz (not too hard).
Most important of all is the fact that we can all catch up with one another’s news since the last event on Saturday 15th February 2020 in the Genesis Care Centre in West Malling.
Headstart is very much looking forward to seeing you there after such a long time.
Both Pauline Mortimer and Debbie Hannant are wanting to place a little more emphasis on the well being and aftercare of patients once their treatment is over. It’s quite easy to think that once everything has been done and that is the end of it. However it doesn’t quite happen like that. Cancer patients have to maintain their well-being, by ensuring that they continue to look after themselves. Quite recently we had a talk on oral care and fitness techniques to suit all types of people and their abilities. The subject of mindfulness to help our mental attitudes has been discussed, and these themes will continue during the course of the year. It’s extremely important to be aware how important it is to look after one’s mind and body. These techniques and other related topics will be revisited for sure in the coming year.
Ann Payne from the Macmillan Centre in Queen Victoria Hospital has a number of very watchable videos on a number of topics concerning well-being and aftercare . To view them go to our Headstart news pageto play the videos. We think you will like them.
