AGH Offers Living Well Cancer Thriving And Surviving Workshop For Community


During treatment, patients have to navigate emotional as well as physical challenges that go beyond their actual plan of care, dealing with concerns of nutrition, strength, the ability to go out in public, and more.

Managing cancer treatment and recovery is unique for each person. After treatment, there can be the worry of the cancer coming back and confusing feelings of anger or sadness. Although many focus on physical changes, some face unexpected emotional and social issues. One of the most challenging obstacles may be coming to terms with what is now normal.

The Regional Cancer Care Center and Supportive Care Services department at Atlantic General Hospital are available to help patients physically and emotionally throughout their recovery. The hospital also offers a new six-week workshop series, called Living Well – Cancer Thriving and Surviving, for those who are currently undergoing or have completed cancer treatment.

Workshop participants will learn how to manage their pain or fatigue, regain physical fitness during and after treatment, communicate with friends, family and caregivers about the illness, and manage stress and difficult emotions, among other skills.
