The Marie Keating Foundation’s Survive & Thrive Programme

For today’s post I’d like to tell you a little bit about the Marie Keating Foundation’s Survive & Thrive Programme for men and women who have finished cancer treatment.

Last night was the first meeting of their latest course of this programme, which I am happy to be attending as a breast cancer survivor. Over the next six weeks, I, along with the other women on this particular course, will learn strategies for our ‘new normal’ of life after breast cancer treatment.

Here’s some more information about the wider Survive & Thrive programme.

Free workshops and seminars to help cancer survivors adapt to their “new normal”

The Marie Keating Foundation’s Survive & Thrive workshops and seminars have been created to help men and women who have finished cancer treatment adapt to their ‘new normal.’

Both the workshops and the seminars include advice from experts on issues that cancer survivors often face including: coping with emotions; fatigue and other symptoms; changing nutritional needs; coping with feelings and change; managing stress and physical activity.

Sometimes the courses are for men or women only and sometimes they are mixed. Attendees are welcome to bring a friend or family member to support them through the course/day.

All courses and seminars are free to attend but places are limited and registration is essential.

The next Survive & Thrive course will take place in early 2019. To register your interest, please contact Angela Egan at the Marie Keating Foundation on 01 628 3726 or email info@mariekeating.ie.
