Sex, intimacy and blood cancer: the great taboo

The impact of blood cancer on sex and intimacy is not always talked about openly and honestly.  It is a topic both people living with blood cancer and health professionals find difficult to discuss.  However, the challenges arising from diagnosis and treatment can change how you look, think and feel about yourself and those around you, no matter how long you have been living with blood cancer or what stage of life you are.   

You are invited to this live webinar to open the conversation on sexual health & intimacy while living with blood cancer. 

In this webinar, our guest speaker Dr Amanda Hordern will be covering: 

  • What do we mean by sexuality and intimacy? 
  • The effects of the natural aging process 
  • The impact of blood cancer and treatments both physical and psychological 
  • Communication with those around us, including family, friends and health care professionals 
  • Practical strategies to assist you 

We will also have a person living with blood cancer sharing her personal experience of navigating her sexuality and health after diagnosis. 

There will be an opportunity for participants to ask questions during the webinar.  You can also submit questions before the webinar by emailing 

We hope you can join us for this thought provoking and highly relevant webinar.
