LIVINGSTON – Often following treatment for cancer, patients find that they need support that is different from their needs while in active treatment. To offer assistance, The Saint Barnabas Cancer Program Department of Psychosocial Support Services will present a free six-part Cancer Survivorship Lecture Series entitled “Project H.O.P.E. (Helping Our Patients Excel).”
“Many individuals find that additional information and support is helpful as treatment is ending”, explains Angela McCabe, LCSW, OSW-C, Director of Psychosocial Support Services and Community Outreach at Saint Barnabas. “This program was created to address the wide variety of medical and emotional concerns patients might have following treatment.”
Each of the following programs will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Leon & Toby Cooperman Jewish Community Center (JCC) MetroWest, 760 Northfield Avenue, West Orange. Participants should park in the garage. Coffee and tea will be provided.
- April 3: Identifying Your Nutritional Needs as Treatment Ends
- April 10: Understanding and Managing Treatment Related Menopause
- April 17: Navigating Your Treatment after Breast Cancer Treatment
- April 24: Managing Cancer Related Fatigue
- May 1: Defining Yourself after Cancer Treatment
- May 8: Review of Current Medicines for Treatment of Anxiety and Depression
