LEWISTON — The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center has announced a series of programs focused on the needs of cancer survivors.

Who is a cancer survivor? Anyone living with a cancer diagnosis! People are survivors from the day they learn they have the disease. The series will provide education on many of the core issues of survivorship — from defining the term “survivorship” to looking at issues of emotional wellbeing, sexuality, nutrition and physical activity.

Living with Cancer: What is Survivorship? will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, in the Lepage Small Conference Room, 99 Campus Ave.

Living Beyond Cancer: Sexuality and Intimate Relationships will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, in the Lepage Small Conference Room, 99 Campus Ave.

Eat Well: Nutrition and Cancer Survivorship will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, in the Potvin Conference Room, 99 Campus Ave.

Move Well: Physical Activity and Cancer Survivorship will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, in the Potvin Conference Room, 99 Campus Ave. 

You are invited to attend the entire series for free or one or two particular workshops based on your personal needs. Each program is open to cancer survivors, loved ones, family, friends, caregivers and anyone interested in cancer survivorship. RSVP is requested but not required. For more information or to register, call Maura Clark, LCSW, at 777-4446.
