Feel Better Live Online Video classes are for women and men with any type of cancer at any stage. These free classes provide an opportunity to learn some practical tips and to connect in a convenient way with others who may be experiencing something similar.

These live online classes are ideal for those who may have difficulty getting to a local class, or don’t have one close by, or can only attend in the evening.

Some of the classes cover new information not covered in a local class, and so are a great way for those who have previously attended a class to keep gaining practical advice and tips as you progress through your cancer treatment and recovery.

They are also good for those who have already attended a class and would like a refresher on the tips given. Or if you are feeling a bit unsure of what to expect and would like a taster in the comfort of your own home.

What the Classes Cover

Using live video platform Zoom, you will be connected with a trained Feel Better class facilitator, who will share advice and practical tips with a small group of participants (normally 6-10 people) who are all joining via video. The class is interactive so you will be able to ask questions and connect with others in a similar situation.

The informal relaxed class can be done from the comfort and privacy of your home, office, or other convenient setting.

The one hour classes cover a variety of different topics, that you can sign up for as you need during and after your treatment, so that you can feel stronger and face cancer with confidence. You can sign up to participate in as many of the live online video class as you like.

Note: we can only provide one makeup & skincare kit per year, whilst undergoing treatment

Keep checking the schedule as more new classes are added…
