Cancer-Thriving and Surviving


Are you living with or beyond a diagnosis of cancer? If you're struggling to manage the impact cancer is having, or has had, on your life, then our 6-week self-management programme may help. The programme is also valuable for anyone who is caring for a loved one, relative or close friend who is living with cancer. The focus is on sharing supportive tools and techniques together with others affected by cancer to learn effective ways to deal with some of the common issues and difficulties people experience.

Topics include:

  • Managing changes to your body

  • Living with uncertainty

  • Dealing with difficult emotions

  • Relationships with others

  • Planning small, achievable goals

  • Problem-solving skills

  • Making decisions about treatments

There are 6 weekly sessions, with each session lasting for 2.5 hours with a scheduled break in the middle. The programme is led by staff and volunteers who have lived experience of the impact of a cancer diagnosis in their lives.
