Our November Special Focus Support Meeting will focus on cancer-related cognitive impairment, often referred to as ‘chemo brain’.

Cancer-related cognitive impairment is a change in thinking processes (cognitive functioning) that affects some people with cancer. Most commonly, it affects memory, concentration, attention and complex thinking processes which include things like planning, and thinking before you do something. Although it is commonly called ‘chemo brain’, it can affect anyone with cancer, whether or not they’ve had treatment, with chemotherapy or any other cancer treatments.

Anyone affected by lymphoma is welcome to join this session to meet others with similar experiences, share information and find support. 

Our Special Focus Support Meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month and focus on a different lymphoma-related topic each time. Anyone affected by that particular topic is welcome to attend. For further information on our full range of support meetings, please visit our Online Support Meetings page.
