Cancer Council WA will launch an eight-week interactive program next month to help those in the South West navigate through cancer.

South West regional education officer Shenae Norris said the weekly, free one hour sessions would provide relevant evidence-based information and the opportunity to ask questions on the day.

Many people need some help and support to adjust to a new way of living when they have been diagnosed with cancer, particularly those living in regional Western Australia where resources are limited.

The program will provide support and awareness presentations delivered through the WA Telehealth system so people can watch on their phone or computer.

“The program will be hosted by expert guest speakers on topics relevant to those impacted by cancer, so we urge anyone in regional WA who would like to know more, or has some questions, to register online today,” Ms Norris said.

Sessions will be held every Thursday 11am to 12noon from April 30 to June 18.
