These blood cancer support groups are facilitated by the Leukaemia Foundation’s experienced blood cancer support coordinators. They are small, confidential groups, and interactive in nature with discussion focusing on the lived experience of participants: essentially, sharing what it’s really like to live with blood cancer with others who can relate. Some participants have said ‘it helps them feel less alone’.
One of the greatest concerns for people living with blood cancer is the worry of blood cancer returning or in the case of MPN patients, of the MPN progressing.
Subsequent feelings of fear, uncertainty and anxiety are very common. For some, these feelings are mild, for others they are significant and may impact on your quality of life.
Living with these feelings can be really challenging.
In this group, we will have the opportunity to explore these feelings in a safe and supportive space, as well as discuss strategies to help manage living with this uncertainty.
