Every month, the War On Cancer app will offer all members of the War On Cancer community free live sessions with licensed psychologist, Hana Jamali. Hana will help us learn techniques and ways to cope with life during and after cancer. The first session will go live Tuesday, April 6th at 14.00 (2:00 pm CET / 1:00pm UK) where she’ll address the process of losing and rebuilding parts of your identity during cancer.


Hana has extensive experience working clinically with patients and couples and is specialized in conflict management, change management, and working with people affected by cancer. She is also a radio psychologist in Sweden.

Want to learn techniques to help reconnect with yourself during and after cancer, learn how to process ‘losing’ parts of your identity due to cancer and learn how to rebuild your identity after going through something as tough as cancer? Then make sure to join the session where War On Cancer app co-founder and leukemia survivor Fabian Bolin meets with Hana to discuss.

The session set up will be in a webinar format so you are able to join anonymously/privately and will be able to ask questions to Hana via chat.

Topics covered in the April session:

  • What is the definition of identity or self?
  • Is there a difference between internal and external self?
  • How can anyone affected by cancer deal and rebuild themselves after ‘losing’ part of their identity?
  • Practical tips and advice for coping with losing a sense of self.

Join Hana and Fabian who will guide you through the session and help you find ways of coping with experiencing cancer.

The session will be a total of 45 minutes and you’ll be guided throughout. It will be hosted online as a webinar. All participants will join without camera or sound for your own comfort and to focus fully on the practice.

The next session with psychologist, Hana Jamali, is TBD in May so keep an eye out.
