The Caring Circle Cancer Education & Support Group for women with cancer is meeting Saturday, May 17 at 10 a.m. in the Saint Clare’s Professional Building, Suite 303. A continental breakfast will be served.
Tammy Stilwell, RN, Community Outreach Coordinator will present: Moving Forward as a Survivor.
“When women finish their cancer treatments, they’re often ready to embrace life as a cancer survivor,” she says. “They sometimes look at things differently now and feel more grateful than ever for life and health. But they’re also concerned about what comes next.” She said the transition can be made easier if they know what to expect.
Held monthly on the third Saturday, Caring Circle is led by experienced cancer care professionals from Saint Anthony’s Cancer Center of Excellence and offers women with cancer a chance to connect with other women about their experiences.
Tracy Phillips, patient navigator for breast health, facilitates the group. “We want to present topics that can help meet the emotional needs of women during their cancer diagnosis and treatment,” she says.
