Changes that can come with cancer treatment can challenge our physical and mental wellbeing. These changes include body image and weight; stress, anxiety and depression; short- and long-term side effects like fatigue and lymphoedema. All of these and more can have a negative impact on our quality of life.
Come along to our Cancer and Wellbeing Day to:
– learn more about ways that may help improve your wellbeing
