Breast cancer care support
Women in Rutherglen and Cambuslang with breast cancer will be offered support at a four- week course to help them move on at the end of their treatment.
The campaign run by Breast Cancer Care comes after it was revealed more than eight out of ten people (86 per cent) survive breast cancer beyond five years.
The need for continued support is increasing as the long- term impact of breast cancer can be overwhelming.
And many people are often left with unanswered questions about how to adjust after their diagnosis or how to manage side effects of treatment such as lymphoedema, hot flushes or reduced confidence.
At Breast Cancer Care’s free Moving Forward courses people can have their questions answered by specialists in a relaxed setting and meet others who are in a similar situation.
The next course starts on Wednesday, June 8, at Chatelherault Country Park in Hamilton from 5pm to 8.30pm each week and is open to anyone with a diagnosis of primary breast cancer in the last two to three years.
