Living Well After Cancer program

Finished cancer treatment and ready to move on?

You may find that you see the world differently after cancer. Perhaps you feel that others don’t understand your experience and expect you to “get back to normal”.

Cancer and its treatment can bring a host of practical challenges, from changes in appearance and body function to managing the emotional and social impacts.

Living Well After Cancer program is a free face to face program held throughout the state, and is run by Cancer Council NSW with trained facilitators who have experienced cancer firsthand.

This 2.5 hour program includes practical information and open discussion for people who are cancer survivors, carers, family, friends and work colleagues. As a participant, you will learn about the possible changes, challenges and opportunities you may face after completing cancer treatment.

You will also have the opportunity to connect with others on a similar journey, and share tips, ideas and activities to help you live your life well.
