SAVANNAH — The American Cancer Society will hold a series of “I Can Cope” programs for people with cancer, their family and friends. The programs are scheduled as follows: Sept. 20, Nutrition During and After Cancer Treatment; Oct. 18, Exercise for Cancer Patients and Survivors; Nov. 8, Cancer Treatment and Side Effects. Each session will be held from noon-2 p.m. at the American Cancer Society office.
The I Can Cope program gives participants an opportunity to share their concerns with others having similar experiences and to learn ways to cope with the challenges that arise from a cancer diagnosis.
Guest speakers include a medical oncologist, social worker, dietician and cancer survivors. In addition, videotapes, print materials and class discussion provide up-to-date information for patients, family and friends.
There is no charge for I Can Cope, but registration is required, as lunch will be provided. For more information contact the American Cancer Society at (912) 355-5196.
