Patients' and Supporters' Conference 2011

The 5th Annual Patients' and Supporters' Conference took place on Saturday 2nd July at the Chancellor's Hotel in Manchester. The feedback we've received so far has been extremely positive, these are just a few of the comments - 'Inspiring, informative and motivational.'

There were inspirational talks from former bone cancer patients who amazed everyone with their positivity and determination. Rob Grimer, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon spoke about working with bone tumours for 35 years and the need for earlier diagnosis. There was also an interesting talk by Sue Murphy a veterinary surgeon who spoke about the similarities of bone cancer in humans and dogs and cats. The BCRT researchers presented their current projects and were also on hand to talk to delegates throughout the day.
