Just about anyone who's had any experience with cancer knows that even after treatment some side effects linger. As survivors return to work, home life and busy routines, they notice changes that should be addressed.
Gilda’s Club will be offering a new series called Post Treatment Networking with lectures offered for the next five Wednesdays to help those who are resuming their lives after cancer treatment.
August 12: “Chemo Brain,” is a lecture with Larry Miller, PsyD, Clinical Health Psychologist, Columbia St. Mary’s Cancer Center. Learn what chemo brain is and if there is a way to alleviate symptoms.
