talk to patients, their friends and families from across Yorkshire and to hear
about their own personal experiences of life with and beyond a cancer
diagnosis. Speakers included Yorkshire TV Calendar presenter Christine Talbot,
who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012; Yorkshire Cancer Research Chief
Executive Dr Kathryn Scott, and Sara Williamson, who has worked with the
Alliance on sharing her patient story, which features on our partnership
Topics covered in the main and breakout sessions included
financial and legal advice; managing side effects; getting involved in clinical
trials; caring for carers, and mindfulness. Stands and displays at the
