“The complementary therapy treatments are a godsend”

Patricia Stacey, 56, from Newtownards was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in February 2023. She has received reflexology treatment whilst staying as an inpatient on Ward 10 North, Belfast City Hospital.

Reflexology treatments

“The treatments made me feel so relaxed, the therapists were so ‘normal’ and happy to chat whilst I was having my treatment. They gave me some tips on dealing with side effects of treatment, how I can help myself, and they just made me feel so much better. They also gave me an aroma stick and a moisturiser to keep, which both smell divine.

“The complementary therapy treatments are a godsend to hospital inpatients, the therapists are so good at what they do and so friendly.

Giving back

“Thank you to Friends of the Cancer Centre for supporting this vital service. I am delighted that my son will be taking part in the charity’s Slieve Donard Challenge in September to give back to the charity who have supported me so well.”
