Blackwood 8 is a team of local volunteers, passionate about making a difference in the lives of people, and their families, affected by cancer. We share a common bond of having a friend diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2007.
In August 2012 Blackwood 8 started an education and support group called "Talking Heads". The support group meets on the first Tuesday of every month...
“It’s helpful to say things out loud in a group”
“Being able to verbalise my feelings without judgement, realising that they’re not so unique”
“Learning strategies to cope with my situation”
“Finding out new information and resources that will be helpful”
