About the Webinar

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.

    I'll try to remember this time! 6:30pm in SA is always an awkward time as falls into the flurry of mealtime.

    Would love to join in with this because I'm at the bottom of a very dark pit at the moment, but I can't work out how to register. Everything I click on is techjargonbabble.
