The power of words

Here at Maggie’s online Centre we rely on words a lot to help us to understand more about the situations you are in, how we can help and also to help you to manage the challenges you face.
Former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis, recently hosted a pilot workshop at our West London Centre about the language used when talking about cancer.

You can read Janet’s thoughts on the workshop about The power of words workshop and watch a short film made by the peoples postcode lottery on our main website.

Sometimes words can be hard to find, you are welcome to drop into any of our Centres or to message Sue (susieq) or me if you would like some help to find the words together
Best wishes
Robyn
