Wellness for Life

Focus: , , Offered at:

wellness-for-life-btnFor many people, the transition to survivorship serves as strong motivation to make positive lifestyle change. Although cultivating healthy habits is a good idea for anyone, it is survivors are often at higher risk for developing other health problems as a result of their cancer treatment.  Healthy behaviors can help survivors regain or build strength, reduce the severity of side effects, reduce the risk of developing secondary cancers or other health issues, and enjoy life more.

The journey at the Regional Cancer Center incorporates a focus on mind-body-spirit well-being from the day  you walk through the doors.  They are committed to integrating wellness components into your care and treatment.  They want you to feel empowered and to regain a sense of control over your cancer.

Research shows that by integrating physical activity, proper nutrition and mind-body-spirit awareness, you can feel better and reduce the side effects of cancer treatment such as nausea, depression, anxiety, fatigue and weight gain.

In keeping with RCC’s mission of providing comprehensive care with a commitment to optimal quality of life for patients and families, RCC has partnered with the Glenwood Park Y to offer supportive, holistic classes in a nurturing and spacious environment.

The classes will be taught by expert fitness professionals and will be offered to cancer survivors and caregivers only, completely free of charge.
