THE first in a series of Cancer Support Days was held at The Awareness Centre last month.
Nine people turned out for the Axminster Cancer Information and Support (ACXIS) event. There were talks on holistic approaches to cancer, nutrition and art therapy, and visitors took part in relaxation and visualisation sessions.
Local company 'Emma and Pickles' (www.chemochic.co.uk) allowed people to try their headwear - an alternative to wigs when hair is lost as a result of cancer treatment.
Emmay Way, a former cancer patient, developed the headwear range following her own experience.
