Support to adjust to life after primary breast cancer treatment
Take part at your own pace by joining our online course that runs over four weeks, or join our new interactive course that runs over two weeks. In both courses, you'll be able to share your experiences in a supportive environment, get tips from breast cancer experts and connect with people who understand.
What to expect at Moving Forward online
How does the online course work?
The online course is hosted in a confidential online space, facilitated by our experienced staff and volunteers. You'll have the opportunity to interact with others through two live sessions and an online group chat. Recorded sessions from expert speakers are released weekly covering a range of topics, such as:
- Clinical support
- Emotional support
- Nutrition and breast cancer
- Activity and energy
- Managing menopausal symptoms
- Breast and body awareness
- Emotional and psychological wellbeing
- Adjusting and adapting after treatment
How does the interactive course work?
Interactive courses run over two weeks in three-hour sessions, led by one of our trained facilitators. Groups are kept small, with no more than 15 people attending. Breast Cancer Now trained volunteers will welcome you and share their own experiences of a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Everyone is encouraged to participate in a way that suits them.
What people have told us
'The course was fantastic, really informative especially regarding diet, exercise and lymphoedema. The whole course helped me feel more empowered and in control. The body awareness section was extremely helpful.'
'Hearing from others was reassuring that I wasn't alone or the only one who was scared.'
'I think the course would be very helpful for anyone who is anxious and frightened about their life after their breast cancer diagnosis.'
