About the Webinar

Feeling angry is a common emotion for many people living with cancer. People may feel angry about the way cancer has disrupted their life or maybe how family, friends or work colleagues treat them after their cancer treatment has finished. Trouble sleeping, fatigue, pain, and nausea, can make even the happiest person feel frustrated, irritable, and angry at times. However when feelings of anger are starting to affect your life in a negative way it may be time to reach out for some external advice.

We will be discussing strategies regarding how to work through and manage your anger, along with providing information about how to get support at this time.
