Workshop Helps Cancer Survivors Stay Connected

Thriving & Surviving Workshop is Now Available Virtually to Improve Quality of Life

Cancer Thriving & Surviving, a free 6-week workshop specifically designed to support the needs of cancer survivors and caregivers is now being offered as a virtual educational experience starting September 2 through October 14, 2020.  This workshop covers both physical and emotional wellness and offers self-management resources to maximize long term health benefits.  Trained facilitators guide participants through an evidence-based process to explore challenges, develop new skills and create action plans that contribute to a greater sense of control over living with or caring for someone with cancer.

“Cancer survivors often experience physical, emotional and psychosocial effects from cancer and its treatment long after treatment is over.  It’s essential that we as healthcare providers continue to help cancer survivors manage and minimize these problems to improve the quality of their lives,” states Barbara Tofani, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Assistant Vice President, Outpatient and Ambulatory Services at Hunterdon Medical Center.

“We often hear that the most unsettling part of a cancer survivor’s experience is when treatment ends and there is the uncertainty of what is next.  This is normal and the reason why the Hunterdon-Mercer Chronic Disease Coalition and the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center are collaborating to support the specific needs of cancer survivors,” states Bonnie Petrauskas, Regional Coordinator for the Coalition.

The workshop series is held every Wednesday from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm starting on Sept. 2 with an introduction on how to navigate the virtual platform and running through to October 14; advanced registration is required and space is limited.  During these challenging times, this is a great opportunity to stay connected and support your health and wellness goals moving forward.  To register or learn more, call 908-237-2328.
