Workshop Helps with Transition to Life after Cancer

Shore Regional Cancer Center and The Wellness Community–Delmarva are sponsoring “Cancer Transitions,” a free six-week workshop designed to help cancer survivors make the transition from active treatment to life after cancer.

The series begins on Wednesday, April 14 with “Get Back to Wellness: Take Control of Your Survivorship.” The program continues on April 21, April 28, May 5, May 12 and concludes on Mary 19. Other topics to be covered include exercise for wellness; emotional health and well being; nutrition; ongoing health management; and life beyond cancer. Each session will be held from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Shore Regional Cancer Center, 509 Idlewild Avenue in Easton.

“Cancer Transitions” will be facilitated by oncology social worker Pam Black, LCSW-C, OSW-C. Clinical social workers, nurses, nutritionists and fitness experts will offer their advice throughout the series. Participants will leave the program with practical tools and resources they can use to formulate a personal action plan for living beyond the cancer experience.

Black says, “The Shore Regional Cancer Program is providing this workshop as part of our emphasis on cancer survivorship. We know that patients benefit when they get important and useful information about self-care when they complete their treatment.”
