Fatigue management under the spotlight in Upper Deeside

Expert advice on fatigue management will be on offer at a Deeside talk hosted by two cancer support organisations.

CLAN Cancer Support and the Second Chancers’ Support Group are staging the event at Ballater Golf Club on Wednesday, 28 November, at 4pm.

Katie Davies of NHS Grampian will be guest speaker at the event, which is open to anyone affected by cancer. It will be held in the club’s upstairs meeting room.

Gemma Powell, CLAN’s area services coordinator, said: “We know that many people are affected by fatigue during or post cancer treatment.

“Katie’s talk is aimed at helping people to understand how to better cope with issues of fatigue. I would encourage anyone who has been affected by cancer - either personally, as a carer, relative or friend - to come along.”

The Second Chancers’ Support Group meets monthly in Ballater Golf Club while CLAN, from its base in the village, offers a range of support services and therapies.
