Health & Wellbeing Meeting

Thank you to everyone who attended our Health & Wellbeing meeting this weekend.

We hope our guests found it worthwhile and of value to their cancer journey.

Dr Olinda Santin’s talk on Supportive Cancer Care was very beneficial to carers and we hope you’ll have a browse of her website and make use of the support it can offer – www.cancercaringcoping.com

Dr Declan Curtis had some wise words to share on coping with depression after a cancer diagnosis – “Don’t try to rise above being human.”

And finally, we said a big goodbye to Julie Hanna, one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists, who will be very missed following her recent retirement.

We would love to hear your feedback on this meeting. If you would like to pass it on, please email info@ogcancerni.com.

What is Oesophago-Gastric Cancer?

Oesophageal cancer is cancer of the gullet and gastric cancer is cancer of the stomach. Combined, they are medically known as oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer. The oesophagus (more commonly known as the gullet or food pipe) is the long tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. In Northern Ireland in 2016, a total of 226 people were diagnosed with oesophageal (gullet) cancer. In the same year, 214 people were newly diagnosed with gastric (stomach) cancer.
