MP Chloe Smith Visits Big C to Mark World Cancer Day

MP Chloe Smith Visits Big C to Mark World Cancer Day

On World Cancer Day (4th February), MP for Norwich North, Chloe Smith, visited Big C’s Norwich Cancer Support and Information Centre, in the grounds of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).

Chloe, who has herself received treatment for cancer, met with members of the Support and Information Team in person and via video link, to hear about the wide range of practical and emotional support offered by Big C throughout Norfolk and Waveney and beyond.

“Thank you to Chloe for taking the time to visit Big C and spend time with the team understanding the scope of work Big C is undertaking to offer the very best support for local people with a cancer diagnosis and their families.”

Dr Melanie Pascale, Director of Charitable Operations Tweet

The team shared news of current projects and new services including ‘Nourish & Nurture’, a wellness intervention programme for individuals living with cancer, aimed at educational lifestyle, behavioural change and psychological support. The ‘Nourish & Nurture’ programme focuses on well-rounded, evidence based, holistic care, including education on healthy eating, weight management and ‘mood and food’, plus health walks for mental and physical wellbeing, 1:1 psychological support, cancer support groups, wellbeing complementary therapies and food and nutrition myth busting sessions.

“It was great to be invited by the Big C Cancer Charity to meet their team and hear about the difference that the centre has made to cancer patients and their families on World Cancer Day. I know from going through cancer treatment myself how important the work the Big C does to support patients and their families."

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
