Cancer Rehab Awareness Week Campaign

Event Date: 
Saturday, April 25, 2020 - 09:00

 

PINC&STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Foundation NZ are proud to launch the details of the first ever worldwide ‘Cancer Rehab Awareness Week Campaign'

There are so many people missing out on cancer rehab services due to a real lack of awareness. This has to change to minimise the risk of preventable long-term disability and suffering for anyone affected by cancer.

The objective of the Awareness Week is to reach more people with information about cancer rehabilitation, so that no one misses out on optimal recovery after a cancer diagnosis. 

The side-effects of cancer and cancer treatment are real but often it’s only the survivors and their loved ones who know the ongoing difficulties cancer treatment can bring. Difficulties that can be helped, if only people knew! No one should be left to rehabilitate from the effects of treatment alone.

The Cancer Rehab Awareness Week is scheduled for the 25th April to 2nd May 2020 and is supported by hundreds of cancer rehab physiotherapists and occupational therapists worldwide alongside several major cancer organisations who are keen to raise awareness too.
