Breast cancer seminar this Saturday

A breast cancer seminar in Parksville this Saturday will be full of valuable and practical information according to clinical counsellor Diane Hancox, one of five scheduled speakers.

“The idea is to give women options other than the purely medical ones they might get from their GP,” she said.

The information will range from big picture and areas like how to deal with feelings about the disease or diagnosis — Hancox’s area — to very specific and practical things from Glenda Neufeld of the Thermography Clinic Vancouver Island and Lily Dawn Roberston, LPN and Natural Health Practitioner talking about lymphatic drainage techniques.

Hancox will speak about emotional wellness and “type C” personalities.

The other speakers are natural health consultant Lisa Leger talking about “A sensible look at natural medicine,” and Sheila Abbott, owner of Sexessories, taking a personal look at recovery and self-care.

There will be refreshments provided, time for questions after each presenter and a lot of useful handouts.

Running from 1 to 4 p.m., April 21, the seminar costs $15 for the handouts and is open to everyone, young and old. People are asked to register in advance if possible at the Parksville Pharmasave, 1 - 281 East Island Highway, 250-951-0243.
