Topic: Self-care

*Please note, this Watch & Wait group is for those diagnosed with blood cancer or disorder who have not received any active treatment.  

The diagnosis of blood cancer is ‘a marathon, not a sprint’. Taking care of ourselves & others is a key ingredient in how one paces themselves for this ‘marathon’. We will explore some of the barriers in life that stop us from taking care of ourselves, as well as discuss the benefits & explore different ways to take on self-care in our daily lives.

These groups are interactive in nature & your participation is valued.  Where possible, we encourage cameras to be turned on for the session to create a warm and safe environment for all participants.

Group sizes are limited so registration is essential.

Things you need to know to participate:

  • You must be 18 years or older and have a blood cancer diagnosis or be the carer or support person of someone with that diagnosis.
  • Support groups close 15 minutes after start time. If you arrive after this, you’ll be unable to join.
  • We ask you abide by the principles of privacy, confidentiality and respect.
  • If you don’t receive a confirmation email of your registration, please check your junk or spam folders.
