Living Beyond Cancer
Finishing cancer treatment can be a time of highs and lows. For some people, going back to “normal life” or a “new normal” isn’t that easy. Some people can feel lost because they are no longer receiving active treatment; others have a hard time adjusting to not seeing their health care team regularly. Along with the relief you might feel finishing your treatment, it is normal to have concerns about your future. Many cancer patients say returning to life after cancer can be a journey in itself.

This class will give you information about what to expect after your cancer treatment. This class takes place on the last Wednesday of every month, in community locations across Nova Scotia.
