Free Cancer Educational Program Offered at West Chester Hospital on March 14: Don’t Just Survive: Thrive!

West Chester Hospital and Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky have partnered to bring support, education and information to those who are battling cancer, to cancer survivors, and to members of the local community who have been touched by cancer.

The two organizations are offering a free cancer education program, “Don’t Just Survive: Thrive!”, on Saturday, March 14 featuring Karen Wonders, PhD, founder and director of Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, a non-profit organization that provides support to people with cancer through nutritional and exercise programs. While cancer treatment can leave a person feeling fatigued, ill and anxious, there is hope. A healthy lifestyle can have numerous benefits on recovery. At this session, attendees will learn the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise during cancer recovery. Principles shared during this event will help cancer survivors become better educated and more equipped to thrive in life after cancer.

This free series is offered throughout the year at West Chester Hospital and features informal presentations by physicians and other health care professionals in a casual and relaxed environment. Presenters speak about a variety of pertinent cancer-related topics. Representatives from Cancer Support Community and West Chester Hospital are available to discuss the challenges of a cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery, as well as provide information about their cancer programs and services.
