You are invited to come and listen to Denise Sweeney, a gynaecological cancer survivor, tell her story of hope and resilience.
Denise is holding a talk at Charlestown Library on Saturday 26th October 2019 to support women who have or who are experiencing a gynaecological cancer.
She was completing her Master of Health Psychology Degree when she was diagnosed, which helped her to cope and go on to beat the odds against clear cell cancer, a rare and aggressive type of cancer with a poor prognosis. She will describe those strategies she still uses today to keep herself healthy.
Having hope gives you direction and helps you get through your treatment. Denise was given hope when she was offered treatment for ovarian clear cell cancer after she was told there was no treatment for endometrial clear cell cancer.
Denise is a 10 year cancer survivor this year and shows that it is possible to live a healthy and active life after cancer treatment, especially treatment that included major surgery, chemo and radiation, which was what she received.
People should come and listen to Denise talk because:
Denise is a Certified Qigong/Tai Chi Instructor and you are welcome to join in as she finishes her talk with a couple of gentle Qigong exercises.
Her story is documented in her published memoir Steps to Survival Gynaecological Cancers: Raising Awareness and My Own Private Battle
The Forward is written by Dr Geoff Otton, Gynaecologic Oncologist.
