They offered instructions and tips for dealing with appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

Another supportive program conducted was change your routine. Wedad Al Siyabi, psychologist said: “The trips were designed to be part of group therapy, so we recently launched our first recreational trips for patients sponsored by Change your Routine company. The program included a cruise from Qantab to one of the islands, where the participants on the island practiced a number of activities such as hiking, kayaking and yoga. In addition, a supportive psychotherapy session was also provided so patients shared their experiences with other patients.”
