SERIES ON SURVIVING CANCER

I finished treatment. Now what?

When cancer treatment ends, a new chapter of life begins. Our eight-week survivorship series is now 10 weeks! During the series, we will provide the information and support you need to manage the challenges that arise after cancer treatment.

The series kicks off with light dinner and guest speaker.

The following 8 Thursday evening sessions will feature a variety of topics including:

  • Understanding how relationships are impacted while on the cancer journey
  • 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

During the final, 10th session we will celebrate the completion of the Series on Surviving Cancer with a light dinner.
