Wolverhampton Bladder Cancer Support Group


The Summer dance was a great success again! Over 100 people turned up to enjoy good food, a good disco from Gary Starr, and familiar songs from Rosy Jane.


These evenings are an easy way to get patients , family and friends to enjoy life together, and we think the aim was achieved yet again. We must offer thanks to all who contributed to a successful event, too many to name here, but they know who they are! Also, thanks should go to the committee for their hard work in making things go smoothly. We have a few photos, whch may have been taken by somone who was very happy, if you know what we mean!














We have created an Archive page so that you can see some of the events that have taken place over the last couple of years, so have a look there!


We will keep this page for current year events only.










The group repeated the West Park Walk for Bladder Cancer on May 19th and it was again well attended.

We were pleased to see Mr Cooke and some of the medical staff from Urology. Here are the piccies!























As if that wasn't enough, the fitter members of the Urology Department at New Cross ran in the Birmingham 10k Run the following Sunday. This was to raise funds for the Urology Association.

They all completed the course, in fine fettle , and raised over £1200 for the cause. Well done!!


Here are the before and after photos- notice any differences???

























A Just Giving page has been set up, and the details are as follows:

On 30th May, Coloplast hosted an open day at the Mercure hotel, Shrewsbury. This may well be of interest to stoma users, and here is a link to the details.  Coloplast Conference.
