    Weekly yoga and relaxation sessions for anyone with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer

    Every Wednesday, 2pm–3pm

    Yoga is a natural way to boost wellbeing as it helps you to relax, cope with stress and anxiety, and get some gentle exercise. Staying active can help with side effects such as fatigue and improve your emotional wellbeing, an important part of life for everyone affected by ovarian cancer.

    Our instructor has experience in leading sessions for people with cancer, so will guide you safely. You can do it seated or standing – whatever feels right for you.

    This session is free but you'll need to register in advance.

    Coffee and chat

    Monday 27 June, 6pm–7pm
    For family and friends of those living with ovarian cancer

    When someone you love receives a cancer diagnosis you may experience a range of conflicting emotions. It's important not to ignore these feelings. Talking about how you feel and making sure that you take care of your own wellbeing is important too.  

    Coffee and chat is a safe, supportive and confidential space where you can meet others, share experiences and hopefully feel less alone. Everyone will be in different places but a shared understanding of the impact of a cancer diagnosis will help you to feel understood. Target Ovarian Cancer’s Val and Soraya will be there to welcome you, guide conversation and help with discussion.   

    Meet Val and Soraya 

    • Val works as a specialist nurse on Target Ovarian Cancer’s support line, providing support to anyone affected by ovarian cancer in the UK.
    • Soraya has worked in the Supportive Services team for three years, planning and delivering our support events.

    Come together to connect, share and find support with others who understand.

    Ask the Experts: managing symptoms and side effects

    Friday 1 July, 2pm–3pm
    Led by Dr Louise Hanna (Consultant Clinical Oncologist) 

    Managing the symptoms of ovarian cancer and side effects of its treatment can be difficult. Many people find that as treatment continues, they learn more about their side effects and can plan around them. Would you like to know more about chemo fog, neuropathy or lymphoedema? Or maybe you want to help your loved one control their symptoms like fatigue, loss of appetite or shortness of breath. 

    Join us to hear from Dr Louise Hanna and have your questions answered. These could be about anything including: 

    • what are the side effects of treatment and how might they affect me? 

    • how long will the side effects last? 

    • what might help me to reduce, control or recover from these side effects? 

    • how can I manage symptoms if I’m no longer responding to treatment? 

    This expert-led, interactive session can help shed some light on managing symptoms and side effects of treatment for ovarian cancer.
