The first meeting of the Cancer Support Group in Marbella took place last week on Friday 26 of January in the cafeteria of the Hospital Costa del Sol.

The event was hosted by Marion Winter, the group’s coordinator, and Susan Hannam from the local Cudeca Foundation, and was attended by around twenty people.

The discussion was focused around the course of the patients’ treatment and what the patients and their relatives do to maintain a good quality of life.

Further meetings will be hosted on the last Friday of every month at 5pm. Future discussion topics will include depression, the side effects of medical treatment and alternative medicine.

Marion was pleased to inform attendees that the scheme has received sponsorship funds from the local British consulate.

Thanks to the funding, free coffee and cakes will be provided in future.
