The Staines Group
meets on Zoom providing the opportunity to come together to
share, listen and learn. We meet on the second Monday of each month
from 17:00 to 18:30. Between us we agree an approach for the sessions.
As well as sharing our stories, providing mutual
support and lessons learnt, doing a meditation, at each meeting we cover a discussion topic.
Typically, these could include: resources available,
weight, exercise and diet (what to avoid and what to include), lifestyle,
detoxing the home, questions for your oncologist, supplements to boost the immune
system, relieving stress……
