A free course that helps support those who have beaten cancer to return to ‘normal’ is being held in Carlisle in May.
It is being run by health professionals from Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support as part of a recovery and rehabilitation programme.
Sarah Howard, Assistant Psychologist with the Physical Health and Rehabilitation Psychology Team said: “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 ‘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 focus on providing some tools and information that may be helpful in moving forward following treatment, in a supportive environment.
The course will be held on 4th May at Wetheral Village Hall, Carlisle, CA4 8HE, from 10am-2pm with lunch provided.
