Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey is hosting a six week Cancer Transitions series for any adult who has completed active treatment for any type of cancer. The program will take place on Thursday evenings, April 24 through June 5 at Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey in Bedminster. This program is free of charge, but does require registration by calling CSCCNJ.
The goal of the program is to empower cancer survivors to take an active role in their recovery and bridge the gap between treatment and life following cancer.
One former Cancer Transitions participant commented: "I appreciated the acceptance of the group and the knowledge gained by meeting and connecting with other cancer survivors. I gained support and friendship from others who are in the same boat by having a place where I could talk about my fears and meet others like me."
Speakers will include an oncology nurse, a clinical social worker, a registered dietician, and a fitness expert who will offer exercises tailored to each participant’s abilities, training in relaxation, and stress management as well as tips for nutritious eating. The series will cover the following topics:
· Medical Management Beyond Cancer: What You Need to Know
· Nutrition and Eating Adjustments after Treatment
· Emotional Health and Well-Being: From Patient to Survivor
· The Benefits of Exercise for Wellness
· Stress Management and Survivorship
CSCCNJ’s program includes support groups, educational programs and healthy lifestyle classes (gentle exercise, relaxation and nutrition, to name a few) at no charge for anyone affected by cancer.
