Understanding Lymphedema with Nicole Langstaff, PT, MS, CLT from ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation

September 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Lymphedema is a common side effect of many cancers and their treatments, causing pain and discomfort for many patients. Fortunately, with support and self-care tools, lymphedema can be managed and, in some cases, treated.

Join us on Zoom or at the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center in the Activity Room on September 8, at 1 pm to discuss the basics of lymphedema: signs and symptoms, prevention, compression, exercise, and self-care strategies. Led by Nicole Langstaff, PT, MS, CLT from ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation.

Navigating a cancer diagnosis is difficult in and of itself but finding support and connecting with those who understand adds another layer of challenges, especially when living in a rural area. To help ease the journey through a cancer diagnosis for those living in Central Maine, the Dempsey Center has partnered with Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center to bring their services to the Ellsworth area.

Using the Dempsey Connects virtual platform, clients of Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center will be able to access this program virtually from the comfort of their own home. This online class will allow clients across the state to access a high-quality program and encourage connection between those who have been impacted by cancer.

As with all Dempsey Center and Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center services, this virtual program is provided at no cost and is open to all. Individuals may access this program at the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center if needed.

This program is possible thanks to the support of Jane’s Trust, a charitable foundation located in Boston, MA, and Hannaford Foundation.
