ALTON – The Caring Circle Cancer Education and Support Group for women with cancer is meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 19, in the Saint Clare’s Professional Building, Suite 303. A continental breakfast will be served.
Shannon Walker, a licensed clinical psychologist and clinical supervisor of Saint Anthony’s Psychological Services, will present A Better Today: Gradual Improvements in Mind and Body. Walker will talk about the link between physical and psychological health. Studies show that a positive influence on a person’s mind can enhance his or her physical health.
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 said.
