SERIES ON SURVIVING CANCER

I finished treatment. Now what?

When cancer treatment ends, a new chapter of life begins. Our ten-week survivorship series will provide the information and support you need to manange the challenges that arise after cancer treatment.

Over the course of 10 evening sessions we will feature a variety of topics including:

  • Learning how to eat and exercise to help stay healthy and reduce risk of recurrence
  • Managing anxiety about cancer returning, sadness, depression and other emotions
  • Exploring mindfulness, meditation, spirituality and other forms of self-care and healing
  • Discussing cognitive and behavioral strategies to increase well-being and resiliency
  • Learning about integrative care and alternative healing methods, such as naturopathy, acupuncture, massage and other complementary approaches and how they can improve your cancer journey
