Gunnedah Cancer Awareness Expo

Gunnedah Can Assist Branch hosted a Cancer Awareness Expo in October which attracted an impressive line-up of speakers and information hubs.  This was designed to help cancer patients and their families negotiate avenues for support and financial assistance. Guest speakers included local Pharmacists, a local GP, a local NSW Ambulance Paramedic, Community Health representatives, Clinical Nurses from the Oncology Unit in Tamworth, Tamworth Massage Therapists and the Cancer Council. Majella Gallagher also attended and spoke on IPTAAS. Other guest speakers included cancer patients who spoke candidly about their cancer journeys. President Kate Knight who introduced the speakers on the night, was thrilled with the outcome of the night and the support we received from the community.
