Studies show that people with cancer who regularly participate in support groups have an increased quality of life.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Our virtual meetings will now be held on the video conferencing site Zoom. It is easy to use and allows us to continue our support group meetings safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ashtons Legal are proud to sponsor Anglia Asbestos Disease Support Group, which has been established for individuals in East Anglia suffering the effects of exposure to asbestos, including conditions such as:
- asbestos-related lung cancer
- diffuse pleural thickening
- pleural plaques.
The monthly meetings are a chance to meet others who understand what you are going through and to learn more about your condition and the help that is out there. Attendees feel less isolated by their illness, and through developing friendships with other patients and carers, gain experiential advice and support.
Guest speakers give advice on treatments, trials, diets, alternative therapies, financial compensation, legal advice and other issues patients and carers may face on their journey.
Meetings are free to attend and are open to patients, carers, family members, medical professionals and other experts working with sufferers.
Groups meet in:
- Norwich – 3rd Monday of each month (no meeting in August)
- Bury St Edmunds – 4th Tuesday of each month (no meeting in August)
