Cancer has a tremendous impact on patients, survivors and those they love, affecting their health and happiness in many ways. To help people with cancer or have ever had cancer and their caregivers in our region have the best outcome and improve their quality of life, Shore Medical Center is partnering with the Cape Atlantic Coalition for Health to offer a free, six-week workshop, “Cancer: Thriving and Surviving,” which begins June 3.  Classes will be held Mondays from 4pm to 6:30pm at Shore Cancer Center, 2nd Floor, 100 Medical Center Way, Somers Point, across from Shore Medical Center at the corner of Medical Center Way and Shore Road.

“Cancer: Thriving and Surviving” is an evidence-based program originally developed by Stanford University and is being offered throughout the country.

  • Fatigue Management
  • Exercise and Fitness
  • Managing Pain
  • Living with Uncertainty

  • …and More!

Participants must register in advance by calling Angela Bailey, manager of community cancer outreach, at 609-653-3992 or by email at abailey@shoremedicalcenter.org. Space is limited. Each session builds upon the previous session, so it is recommended that participants attend as many sessions as possible.
