The Rutland and Melton Cancer Support Group had its first meeting in February 2000.

This Group was started by an Oakham resident who had been successfully treated for ovarian cancer during the previous year.  She realised at that time that, whilst her medical care had been very good, there was very little local information and accompanying on-going support for sufferers and their families; the nearest being ‘Coping With Cancer’, 20 miles away in Leicester.
 
That first meeting, in the day-room of Oakham Hospital, was attended by over 15 people, and the Group has subsequently held monthly meetings in a room at ‘Voluntary Action Rutland’ ever since – 2nd Wednesday of every month at 7.30 p.m.

The Group started originally for the Rutland area, but when new people began coming from Melton, it was quickly renamed to encompass the wider area.  It now holds a day-time meeting at the Samworth Centre in Melton Mowbray (1st Thursday of every month), as well as the monthly evening meetings in Oakham.

Now, several years later, it continues to offer friendship and mutual support, reliable information, hospital visiting, social events and regular newsletters, to anyone affected by cancer, whether as a patient, a carer, relative or friend.  Much work is on-going to maintain credibility and trust with the statutory bodies.  Local radio and newspapers continue to support the Group, as do several generous sponsors from both Melton, Rutland and surrounding areas.
Members testify to the benefits they gain from being a part of this kind of Group, which is far from gloomy. There have been speakers of various kinds, musical evening, outings and much laughter, which have helped many members through some difficult times.
