Patient Meeting – Liverpool

 In Patient Meetings

Around 40 patients, relatives and professionals attended our patient meeting at the CRUK building in Liverpool to hear a wide variety of talks on ocular melanoma.

We were very fortunate to have Professors Damato and Coupland from the Liverpool Ocular Oncology Service as well as Dr Sara Selig who travelled from CURE OM in the USA.

We also heard from Michael Andrew, an ocular melanoma patient, who gave us the benefit of his experience so far.

Huge thanks go to our regional representative, Keith Tanner, for his hard work in organising the event, as well as the team from Liverpool – particularly Dawn Roberts.

We were very grateful that professional expenses for the event were funded by sponsorship from Delcath Systems. Thanks are also due to Cancer Research UK for their support of the day. Overall it was a great success.
