Healthy Living after Cancer Program
Healthy Living after Cancer is a free lifestyle coaching program for cancer survivors provided by Cancer Councils New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
Getting back to a healthy lifestyle after cancer is one of the most important things you can do for your health. The Healthy Living after Cancer program will help you to get active, eat better and feel better, so that you can do more of the things that are important to you.
Cancer survivors who take part in the program receive up to 12 telephone calls over a period of 6 months from a Cancer Council nurse or health consultant, along with a program workbook. The nurse or health consultant will work with you to make healthy lifestyle changes by setting goals for physical activity and healthy eating, and will help you reach these goals by giving you support, helpful tips and motivation.
The program is available to adults living in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, the ACT, Tasmania, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, who have been treated for any type of cancer and who have finished active treatment (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy). The program is available to people diagnosed and treated for cancer recently as well as those who had cancer many years ago.
