'Fighting Fatigue' workshop set
LEWISTON — The Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope & Healing is offering a free workshop for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers targeting cancer-related fatigue. "Fighting Fatigue" will take place Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Dempsey Center, 29 Lowell St.
Cancer-related fatigue is one of the most common side effects of cancer and its treatments. Although it may seem counterintuitive, decreased physical activity, which may be the result of illness or of treatment, can also lead to tiredness and lack of energy. Scientists have found that even healthy athletes forced to spend extended periods in bed or sitting in chairs develop feelings of anxiety, depression, weakness, fatigue and nausea.
Central Maine Medical Center Health and Fitness Center Supervisor Nate Littlefield will discuss tips and techniques for safely becoming more active, which can decrease the feeling of fatigue and increase energy.
Preregistration is available by calling the Dempsey Center at (207) 795-8250; toll-free 1-877-336-7287 or online at www.dempseycenter.org.
