A cancer diagnosis can create a lot of stress in a person's life; however, thanks to early detection and improved treatments, it no longer is necessarily a death sentence. Because of these factors, there's more than 11 million cancer survivors in the United States alone. This week, United Hospital Center is dedicating their days to them.
For the next week, cancer patients and survivors are invited to a free lecture series that's aimed to help in the transition to wellness. Each day, there's a different activity but there's one common message and that is that "It's All About You."
Every day the series will be held in the Cecil B. Highland Jr., and Barbara B. Highland Cancer Center, starting at 11 a.m. It will go on until noon. You don't have to be a patient at the hospital on a certain day to come to the lecture. Any hospital patients are welcome. There's different topics ranging from managing stress, to diet, communication, staying alive and looking your best.
This series is meant to keep patients' spirits up during the holiday season.
You also need to let yourself feel good and be as stress free as possible. That's why Monday's part of the lecture included the hospital chaplain and massage therapists. Patients were able to get free massages during the session.
