Live online video classes – with guest speaker

Feel Better Live Stronger online sessions are for men with any cancer at any stage. The 60-minute class gives you the opportunity to be with a small group and listen to and chat with a guest speaker. This may be a person from the professional sporting arena, a respected Kiwi, someone with an inspiring story to share, or an expert who can give you more advice to help you feel more like yourself. This session, usually a group of 8-10 men, also includes our  trained facilitator who will share tips and techniques to help you look after your skin, hair, and  body in a relaxed and interactive environment.

Once you have registered you will be sent a Confidence Kit of donated skincare and toiletries for the session. A Zoom link will be emailed to you ahead of the class. You are welcome to attend as many sessions as you would like to, however we only offer one Confidence Kit per year, to ensure we can provide one for all those who need them.
