More about this Webinar

Fatigue is when you feel very tired, weak, drained and worn out. Cancer-related fatigue is different to normal tiredness because it doesn’t always go away with rest or sleep. Some people describe it as mental and physical exhaustion.

 

Research shows that most people experience fatigue after their cancer diagnosis.

 

While fatigue may be expected, life doesn’t stop. You may still need to do daily things like go to work, pick up the kids, do the shopping and clean your house.

 

In this webinar, we looked at ways you can manage your fatigue and get your energy back. We also explored some useful services that can support you through these challenging times.
