A Guide to Life After Cancer

April 06, 2018

The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) is offering a free educational series, “Cancer Transitions, A Guide to Your Life After Cancer,” for cancer survivors.

Starting May 10, this educational series will educate patients who have recently completed treatment or who are undergoing hormone therapy on what they can expect in their life after cancer.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are 15 million cancer survivors living in the U.S. today, and that number is expected to climb to 20 million by 2026 due to early detection and treatment breakthroughs. However, the battle against cancer does not stop after the last treatment.

Survivors often face challenges related to treatments, physical health, mental health and financial concerns.

The HOCC sessions will include information on navigating financial and emotional aspects of survivorship, exploring integrative therapies, nutrition and exercise, and long term health management.

The series will be held every Thursday from 5:30 to 7:30 for four weeks at the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute at The Hospital of Central Connecticut on 183 North Mountain Road in New Britain. A healthy dinner will be provided each week.

To register, please call 1.855.HHC.HERE (1.855.442.4373). Free parking is available.
