The Well Living EPP Group

The Well Living EPP (extrapleural pneumonectomy) Group began in 2012 and meets three times a year at the Drummoyne Sailing Club. Our last meeting for 2017 was held 22nd November with 24 attendees that included the wonderful physiotherapy staff from Strathfield Private Hospital and surgeon Professor Brian McCaughan. Our guest speaker was ADRI’s Molecular Scientist, Dr Yuen Yee Cheng, whose presentation explained the work that is evolving to identify people who might be at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease using a less invasive diagnostic test. The talk was followed by a group lunch in the Sailors Grill and then the usual frantic conversation, laughter and intergroup support. This support of each other underpins everything about this special group of survivors and partners, and friends who have lost their partners.The Well Living EPP Group
