Life After Cancer

recipeforsurvivalframeLIFE AFTER CANCER

    WOMEN of HOPE breast cancer support groups help those people and their care givers in all stages of breast cancer. Our focus is on coping with diagnosis, treatment and enjoying life after cancer. Bring your family and friends to the monthly meetings and special programs at no charge. Learn from guest speakers who are doctors, nurses and cancer survivors. Come and meet people who have been cancer survivors for many years.

     A noted researcher did a ten year study on the effect that participation in support groups like "WOMEN of HOPE" had on cancer patients:

·         When compared to people who were not in groups, the people who participated in the support groups "showed significantly lower depression, fatigue, confusion and total mood disturbance as well as higher vigor."

·         The study showed that support groups had a beneficial effect on length of life for cancer patients who participated.

     Treating cancer is more than just healing the physical symptoms with drugs and chemotherapy. Research shows that emotional support from families, friends and others who have experienced cancer firsthand is crucial to the well-being of someone living with the illness.  Don’t hesitate to rely on your family and friends for support!  When overcoming breast cancer a support group can help you meet others who are suffering from the same disease. There is no better way to alleviate your emotional and challenging needs!
