Finished Cancer Treatment? This Free Course Can Help

A cancer diagnosis can be a real shock to the system and people often find themselves very quickly living with a new routine that revolves around treating their illness. But what happens when the treatment finishes and you go back to trying to live a normal life?

Manager of Cancer Information and Support at the Macmillan Centre in Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary, Claire Drummond hopes a FREE six week course will help people adjust to life after treatment.

Claire said: “Cancer treatment can have a dramatic affect on people’s lives in many different, often unexpected, ways. We wanted to offer practical opportunities for people to explore their feelings, get answers to their questions and meet other people who have faced similar challenges.

“The course is called After Treatment Finishes...What Now? and it is aimed at people who have completed cancer treatment in the last year. It covers a wide range of issues like sleep and fatigue, exercise, body changes, communication, facing the future and moving forward with your life.”

The course starts on Wednesday 29 October 2014 and runs for six consecutive weeks between 4.00pm and 6.15pm. There is no charge and people are asked to attend all six sessions if possible.
