Wellbeing after Cancer

Welcome

Cancer Council WA's Wellbeing after Cancer program offers support to people for the time after their cancer treatment has finished. This may include complete recovery from cancer, or perhaps now living with cancer. A Registered Nurse who is specialised in the Wellbeing after Cancer program will assist you to identify your specific needs and support you to achieve them through a series of coaching phone calls and useful tools, including developing an individualised care plan. 

Wellbeing after Cancer will:

  • provide healthy lifestyle recommendations and resources including physical activity and nutrition guidance tailored to your requirements; 
  • link you to a range of practical and emotional support services; and, 
  • suggest links to groups and other services in the community to support you further as you adapt to your ‘new normal’.
