Open to anyone in the community touched by cancer, "Embracing Life after Cancer” is an informative series, covering a range of topics that address the unique needs of cancer survivors as they move beyond diagnosis and treatment.

The spring 2014 calendar begins March 20, and includes seven sessions offered by area experts discussing the physical, emotional, and nutritional health of cancer survivors. Each session will address questions and concerns, while providing information and resources to support the ongoing health of patients and their families. All sessions will be held 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Mid Coast Hospital and are free and open to the public. Schedule and topics are as follows:
  • Thursday, March 20: Moving Beyond Treatment
  • Tuesday, April 1: Physical Challenges after Treatment
  • Monday, April 14: Psychological Reactions to Cancer Diagnosis and Ways to Cope
  • Monday, May 5: Genetics and Second Cancers
  • Tuesday, May 13: Changing Bodies, Changing Minds
  • Wednesday, May 28: Nutrition and Cancer
  • Wednesday, June 11: Moving Toward Health: Exercise and Survival
Mid Coast Hospital’s Cancer Care program is accredited by the Commission on Cancer for the quality of its comprehensive, multidisciplinary patient care. The team of oncologists and surgeons is committed to cancer screening and prevention, the earliest possible diagnosis, and aggressive and advanced treatment of all types of cancers.

Peggy Waterman, CNP, Maine Center for Cancer Medicine, commented, "Due to preventative measures and advanced treatments, cancer survival rates will continue to rise. The ‘Embracing Life with Cancer’ series plays an integral part in offering comfort and guidance to so many Midcoast families whose lives have been impacted by cancer in some way.”
