Cancer and COVID-19 Wellness Webinar

As part of our mission to ‘make cancer less frightening by enlightening’ and our response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Marie Keating Foundation with the support of Roche, are delighted to bring a six-part webinar series for cancer patients, survivors and their families looking at all aspects of health and well-being while at home during COVID-19.

We recognise that for cancer patients and survivors COVID-19 has brought with it a heightened sense of anxiety and vulnerability. Despite restrictions with social distancing and cocooning, it is imperative that we remain together as a community while we are apart and offer support and advice to anyone who needs it during this challenging time.

In developing this six-part webinar series we have tried to ensure that we cover topics across a range of subjects focusing on FAQ’s, COVID and cancer and how to stay healthy and well, both physically and mentally, while at home. We are so grateful to our sponsor Roche for their ongoing support of our work and this series and to the experts who are contributing to it for giving so generously of their time and expertise.

The six-part series is designed to be enjoyed as a series but each episode is available below to be enjoyed in your own time.
