Initially, the meetings were held at Kafein Bistro at Marsabit plaza and were on a monthly basis. Between 6pm – 8 pm, the audience would interact with the specialist of the day in question and answer sessions that also opened up to discussions with patients, caregivers and the general public on cancer related topics. The first cancer café was held in the month of September 2017 with a monthly average attendance of 30-40 people per session.
Over time, the feedback from the audience was that 2 hours was not enough and that they needed practical examples of the various topics that were up for discussion. These included nutritional demonstrations, grooming & wellness, group exercise sessions and talks. A one stop shop for all matters cancer related.
