Information Sessions

Information session

Cancer Council Queensland offers a range of support and information sessions throughout the year, in locations across the state. These sessions are conducted in a supportive group environment for people affected by cancer, their carers, partners, friends and families.

Presentations from experienced health professionals cover general information on cancer, treatment options available, survivorship, healthy living, coping tools and support services available.

Our programs assist people to adjust to the diagnosis, treatment and life after cancer treatment by providing:

  • Support – providing the opportunity to share experiences with others going through a similar experience.
  • Information – about cancer and treatments to help people prepare for treatment.
  • Support services available – providing information on support services available to people affected by cancer.

Cancer can affect you in physical and emotional ways. Changes to your body can affect the way you feel about yourself (your self-esteem) and make you feel self-conscious. You may feel less confident about who you are and what you can do after treatment. You may worry about starting a new relationship after cancer treatment, especially if your body has changed.

This webinar will discuss some practical strategies to help cancer survivors to reclaim their confidence after treatment.
