1:54pm Monday 19th August 2013 in News
MACMILLAN Cancer Support is running a free course in Cardigan to help people to manage the psychological impact of a cancer diagnosis.
The programme will run at Small World Theatre, Bath House Road, on Tuesdays for six weeks starting on September 3.
Called Helping to Overcome Problems Effectively (HOPE), Macmillan’s new self-management course will run from 10.30am to 1pm.
Macmillan is offering HOPE to anyone living with a cancer diagnosis and this year is the first time the charity has run the programme in Wales.
Topics the course focuses on include managing stress, fatigue and body image and living positively with the fear of recurrence.
Susan Morris, General Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales, said: “We at Macmillan know that receiving a cancer diagnosis has a huge psychological impact.
“Macmillan is delighted to be offering HOPE in Wales as the programme can give people the tools they need to manage the psychological consequences of living with cancer.”
To register for the course, please contact Genette Webster on 01656 867966 or email email@example.com.
