We know that many people undergoing cancer treatment will suffer from fatigue at some stage in their journey.
Fatigue is a lasting tiredness that is not helped with rest and sleep, but it can be managed with the right approach, especially if treated early.
When fatigue is well managed, you will find that you're able to return to your pre-cancer diagnosis lifestyle much sooner.
Our team of cancer and haematology allied health professionals are here to help you understand how to manage fatigue and where to seek help to manage this condition.
