Living with Cancer and Beyond

There will be free events for those coming to the end of their cancer treatment during January and February.

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.

The ‘living with and beyond cancer’ event offers a chance to meet others and find ways to manage some of these difficulties in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The topics we cover will be decided by you on the day. 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 events are run by NHS health professionals and are part of your recovery and rehabilitation programme. They will focus on providing you with some tools and information that may be helpful in moving forward following treatment, in a supportive environment.

If you would like to find out more and attend a Health and Wellbeing day; please email Muhammad.abdul-basit@cumbria.nhs.uk or telephone 07810153914 for more information.
