This week at Maggie' Online Centre

Hello a busy week here at Maggie’s Online centre

Many of you will have seen  that Sue (susieq) and I will be running a live drop in  cancer support specialist nurse session for members on Tuesday at 12.00  -  You are welcome to  drop in to ask a question, to talk to us about the online centre, to let us know a little more about your situation, to find out more about Maggie's  and to meet some of the other members. To join the session you need to be a member of the Open talks  group. 

Most of you will already be signed up to the group as membership is automatic for new members of the online centre and you can just follow the link from your dashboard.  For those of you who have been members of the online centre for some time you may need to join the group – if this is the case then follow the link  to the information about Open talks from our general group information page 

 Following a successful  pilot last week Caroline (carolineh) our  nutritional therapist will be offering further live  individual nutrition sessions on Wednesday  morning. If you are interested in booking a session  then  you can request one by visiting the group page – we  are currently booking for the next couple of weeks so please book as soon as you are able to. 

You may have heard in the news today that benefits caps are being extended from today – if you are worried you may be affected you may  be interested in reading the information blogs from our benefits advisor  Tom (tombenefits) in our benefits section or getting in touch with him to discuss your individual situation.

We also have places in some of our online support groups ( for some there is a short waiting list) Please let Sue or I know if you are interested in joining or follow the information on the groups page. 

Best wishes

 Robyn
