Cancer Transitions

October 4, 2022 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

It is quite common to feel a wide range of emotions once treatment ends.

This post-treatment phase of survivorship requires many things – physical activity, nutrition, a healthy emotional life, and management of any health concerns that may arise.

You can improve your quality of life by addressing these in an active way.

Cancer Transitions is a free, 90-minute, four-week workshop designed to help cancer survivors make the transition from active treatment to post-treatment care.

Session 1 (October 4) – Get Back to Wellness: Take Control of Your Survivorship
Session 2 (October 11) – Emotional Health
Session 3 (October 18) – Eating Well and Staying Active
Session 4 (October 25) – Medical Management Beyond Cancer: What You Need to Know
Facilitated by: Ross Alexander, LCSW

To participate in Cancer Transitions, you must have completed active cancer treatment within the last 24 months. Spots are limited. Participants must commit to attending all four sessions. Priority will be given to those treated at Advocate Aurora Health.

Participation will be confirmed by a Gilda’s Club Chicago staff member prior to the start of the program.

For questions regarding this program, please reach out to Virtual Program Manager, Lindsay Tynes, LCSW, OSW-C, at [email protected] or 312-464-9900.
