Surviving and Thriving – When Treatment Ends Series
February 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
The Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center in Ellsworth continues to collaborate with the Dempsey Center, a renowned provider of cancer support services in Lewiston and South Portland, Maine, to bring a selection of their holistic cancer support programs to rural downeast Maine, throughout the month of February and March. This series will be held each Wednesday, beginning February 23 through March 30, 2022 from 4:00 – 5:30 pm.
The third program offered is ‘Surviving and Thriving – When Treatment Ends Series’. When cancer treatment ends, the impact of cancer can often continue. Join us for this 6-week series to learn techniques for coping with the new physical and emotional reality of your post-treatment cancer journey.
While connecting with other survivors, learn the importance of eating well, strategies to optimize your diet, identify how movement and fitness can care for your body and mind, and explore how complementary therapies can improve your well-being.
Dempsey Center facilitators include Maureen Higgins, MSW; Judy Donnelly, RDN; Tish Caldwell, Certified Oncology Fitness Instructor; Maggie Miller, LMT. This free series is open to patients approaching the end of cancer treatment or post-treatment.
Space is limited. Please register early.
The programs introduce the use of high-quality teleconferencing equipment so that participants can view selected programs on a big screen at the Center while engaging in real-time with the presenter and other attendees, or on Zoom.
These telecasted programs are provided at no cost and are open to all. These programs are possible thanks to the support of Jane’s Trust, a charitable foundation located in Boston, MA, UNUM, Hannaford Charitable Foundation, and Hannaford Supermarkets.
