Healthy Living After Cancer Program

Posted 2 Aug 2016.



Getting back to a healthy lifestyle after cancer is one of the most important things you can do for your health.  Our Healthy Living after Cancer (HLaC) program offers free health coaching over the phone, with experienced cancer nurses.  The program can help you get active, eat better and feel better, so that you can do more of the things that are important to you.

You'll receive up to 12 health coaching calls over a period of six months from a 13 11 20 Cancer Council nurse.  The program is delivered entirely by telephone, so you can access it wherever you live in WA.

The free service provides a personalised diet and exercise program for people over the age of 18 who have completed cancer treatment.

Rosemary Hodgkin, Healthy Living after Cancer Nurse at Cancer Council WA, said the program is a great way to make some positive lifestyle changes and get back in shape.

"Getting back to a healthy lifestyle after cancer is important and exercising more and eating better may help reduce the risk of cancer returning," she said.
