Cancer survivor Connie praises support scheme.
Connie Harban discovered she had the disease after arriving home from a cruise in 2010.
During the last two years she has undergone treatment and made a good recovery.
In April, a scheme was launched across Coventry and Warwickshire to offer cancer patients more support and advice on healthy eating, exercise, benefits, financial advice and the long term effects of cancer treatment.
Connie, who is now retired, attended the pilot sesssion held by the Arden Cancer Network and Macmillan Cancer Support.
She said: "It's not just the challenge of getting physically better, it's the emotional and for some people the financial legacy can also be difficult to overcome.
"I would definitely recommend these events to other people."
The next event will be on July 4 at Warwick Gates Community Centre, Cressida Close in Heathcote from 2-4pm.
