Herefordshire nurse Philippa Hurlow has been recognised by national cancer charity for her dedication to a local support group that she helped set up for patients living with myeloma.

Philippa is one of more than 70 support group leaders from around the country who received a commemorative framed illustration from Myeloma UK to thank them for their hard work raising awareness and understanding of myeloma, as well as supporting patients and family members.

“We’re delighted to be able to recognise her contribution and dedication to the group”

Ms Hurlow, a haematology/oncology nurse specialist at Wye Valley NHS Trust, has been organising the Hereford Myeloma UK Support Group for two years ago. She said: “I am pleased to receive this recognition from Myeloma UK and very privileged to be able to offer this support to group members.

“Our local support group helps people to understand more about myeloma by providing information on the latest treatments and advice on how to manage symptoms,” she said.

She added: “It’s a great opportunity to meet other patients, family members and carers in an informal and friendly environment and to learn more about living with myeloma.”

Sara Morgan, Myeloma UK’s support group lead, said: “Support groups are important to many patients and offer an opportunity to share experiences, learn more about myeloma and forge friendships.

“Philippa does a great job leading the Hereford Support Group, and we’re delighted to be able to recognise her contribution and dedication to the group,” she added.
