Recognising grief and loss: for women living with metastatic cancer

This event has past.

Location:  Activities Room, The Mornington Centre, 24 Separation St, Mornington

Grief and loss are closely linked with living with a life-threatening illness. You may have already experienced losses like your energy and health, your independence, your work or your financial stability. You may also feel anticipatory grief about things you may not get to see or do in the future, like see your children grow up, enjoy retirement, or meet your grandchildren. Grief is an ongoing process that waxes and wanes over time. Past feelings of loss can reappear when new losses occur. So it’s important to learn to live as well as possible, with the grief.

Our presenter, Andrea Murphy is a counsellor and lecturer who has had many years experience working with people living with loss and grief. Andrea will also facilitate discussion to allow for sharing of experiences and strategies to manage grief.

There will be time afterwards to have a cuppa, connect with other women attending and meet staff and volunteers from Counterpart Counterpart is partnering with McGrath Breast Care Nurse, Jenny Macindoe, at Peninsular Health, Frankson to organise this session.

This session is part of our Making Connections program for women living with advanced/metastatic cancer.
