At Penny Brohn UK, we recognise that people affected by cancer need more than medicine. We see each person as a unique individual with their own set of hopes and needs – a whole person made up of mind, body, spirit and emotions.

At our latest conference (15 November 2019) healthcare professionals, academics, complementary therapists and people living with cancer came together to find out more about integrative cancer care – using lifestyle medicine, psychological support and complementary therapies alongside standard medical treatment.

If you were unable to join us on the day, footage of our speakers and panel discussion is available to watch. Penny Brohn UK relies on generous donations to help us keep our services for people affected by cancer free. Please consider a small donation to the charity when watching and sharing these videos.
