talkhealth meets Candice: staying positive when going through a cancer journey
We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be chatting to the brilliant Candice Hampson from Liminal Health about staying positive when going through a cancer journey.
When: Tuesday 3 November 2020
Where: Instagram - @talkhealthonline
Candice was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer in 2015, aged 32. Finding that she was lacking some of the crucial support she so badly needed, Candice has subsequently dedicated her career to improving the lives of other people affected by cancer - so they don’t have to face the same issues that she did on their path to better health.
One of the biggest barriers for Candice was finding credible, evidence-based information from which she could research her condition and treatment options. Her second hurdle involved understanding the healthy habits she needed to adopt in order to speed her recovery - diet, exercise, stress reduction and mindset.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, with one in eight women and one in 900 men developing it in their lifetime.
Candice is such an inspirational woman and her advice is really going to be pertinent for all of us - whether we’re going through cancer, caring for someone living with the disease or we simply want to optimise our health.
If you have any more questions or want to know how to can connect with other people living with breast cancer, please do join us on Instagram where you can put your queries directly to Candice. If you'd prefer for us to ask on your behalf, drop us an email before the event.
