The impact of loss and grief: From diagnosis to death and beyond

In this webinar, we will be exploring the common experiences of loss and grief associated with blood cancers / blood disorders. Blood cancer has big and little losses, some are obvious, and some are not e.g. loss of identity / loss of a loved one / lost sense of security and future dreams. Learn how to recognise these losses and discover strategies for managing them.
