Free Cancer Seminar: “Coping with Anxiety & Depression” Offered at West Chester Hospital on Nov. 8

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

The two organizations offer a free monthly educational series featuring 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 seminar topic as well as provide information about their cancer programs and services.

The next session is Saturday, November 8 and features Jim Schwartz, a licensed clinical social worker from Cancer Family Care, a partnering organization with West Chester Hospital.

When first diagnosed with cancer, one can feel overwhelmed with a variety of painful emotions – fear, anger, anxiety, sadness, loss of control and more. Questions arise such as: Am I going to die? What will happen to me and to my family? The emotional impact of cancer can impact the quality of our lives in many ways. During the seminar, Schwartz will discuss how to navigate the emotional journey with cancer.
