Breast cancer care sup­port

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

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.
