March is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

ovcaMarch 2016 is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Hopefully this This is freely given material from the Healing Space course, but is not designed to replace in -depth training for those who wish to specialise in working with people with additional health needs.
