Women with breast cancer in Tayside will be offered support to help them move forward after the end of treatment at a four week course run by Breast Cancer Care.

The long-term impact of breast cancer can be overwhelming and with more than eight out of 10 people (86 per cent) surviving breast cancer beyond five years the need for continued support is increasing.

Many people are often left with unanswered questions about how to adjust after their diagnosis or how to manage side effects of treatment, like fatigue, hot flushes or reduced confidence.

At Breast Cancer Care’s free Moving Forward courses people can have their questions answered in a relaxed setting and meet others who are in a similar situation.

The charity has been running their highly successful four week Moving Forward course in partnership with NHS Tayside for the past three years. The next course starts on Wednesday, Apri 20, in Dundee from 2–5pm each week. Please contact Breast Cancer Care directly for details of the venue and to book your place.

The event is free of charge, but anyone interested in attending must register in advance by contacting a member of Breast Cancer Care’s Services team on 0141 353 8330 or sco@breastcancercare.org.uk to guarantee a place.
