Regular visitors to our site will know that we meet roughly once a month in a central location in Basel. This is an opportunity for folks who are affected by cancer – directly or indirectly – to come together to share their thoughts (“how come I got cancer?”), fears (“every time I get a headache/backache/toe ache, I’m sure it’s come back”), concerns (“my husband/wife/daughter/son is finding it hard to cope and I don’t know how to reassure them”), and joys (“my first grandchild was just born”)…
Our next get-together, starting with lunch and then proceeding to the meeting, will be Friday June 12th. If you’d like to join us, please send us a mail on email@example.com and we’ll fill in all the details.
