Ekta Unity September 2018

I was absolutely delighted when were invited to the event organised by Ekta Unity and FWT (Foleshill Women's Training Centre) for their Cancer Awareness and Health & Well-being event.  My son, daughter-in-law were on the team. We were overwhelmed by the kindness and interest the community showed in lymphoedema awareness.  The day was about encouraging cancer awareness and having those difficult conversations with health care professionals.  The signs to look for and how to keep healthy.  L-W-O was thrilled to be a part of this event and a big thank you to Surindar for inviting us.
