HOPE (Help Overcome Problems Effectively) supports people to manage the day-to-day impact of cancer, make the most of the positive things in life and rediscover their strengths.
Topics covered include setting goals, managing stress, identifying strengths, healthy lifestyles, becoming more positive, changes to your body and fear of the disease returning.
The course starts at The Wellbeing Hub, Queens Park Street, Bolton on 22 January. It is made up of three weekly group sessions from 10am-4pm on Mondays.
It is led by the team from the Bolton Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service and volunteers who have been affected by cancer.
Kelly Gordon, the service’s deputy manager, said: “Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. However, people don’t have to go through it alone.
“HOPE is delivered in a friendly, helpful and informative way. It aims to help people feel happier, more confident, motivated and positive about the future.”
