A free Living Well with and beyond Cancer Event

Macmillan funded professionals with the Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust will be holding a free event in Barrow to help people living with and beyond cancer after treatment.

Hillary Cave, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the Physical Health and Rehabilitation Psychology Service said “We recognise that finishing cancer treatment can be a positive experience; however it is common for people to struggle to return to normal, often due to difficulties such as fatigue, sleep, pain, relationships, emotions, body image and other worries. We know that friends and family can find the treatment process difficult too, so they are welcome to come along. We will be able to give them some advice and information as well”.

The course will be held on 25th February at Barrow Fire Station, Phoenix Road, from 10am-2pm with lunch provided. Our ‘living well with and beyond cancer’ course offers a chance to meet others and find ways to manage some of these difficulties in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The course will be run by NHS health professionals as part of a recovery and rehabilitation programme which will focus on providing some tools and information that may be helpful in moving forward following treatment, in a supportive environment.
