Speakers explore cycle of anxiety

NEWS

Dannevirke Men’s Cancer Support Group recently had as their guest speakers Don and Joanna from Massey Health Conditions and Cancer Psychology Service — a big title for an essential service. More than 20 men were given the opportunity to share their ongoing recovery from a large range of cancers. Once the ice was broken, by sharing our own stories in a small group, Joanna and Don led the group through the cycle of anxiety and FCR — Fear of Cancer Recurrence and the “tools” to help cope. They finished with an exercise of “mindfulness” or meditation, which many found a new mysterious experience. If anyone is struggling with what they are going though and need someone to talk to, contact Peter 3747947.
