We may not be able to hold hands, but we can still touch hearts!
Saturday September 11 - Saturday September 18, 2021 Rochester, NY
Due to the uncertain nature of the pandemic, and out an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to go virtual once again for 2021. We so miss gathering in person, but we’re all about wellness! Surely by 2022, we’ll be able to gather once again in celebration of all of the women and families impacted by gynecologic cancers, but for now, you’ll be able to wherever and whenever you please from Saturday, September 11, 2021 – Saturday, September 18, 2021.
& SUPPORT DURING YOUR INFUSIONS
BRINGING YOU COMFORT & SUPPORT DURING YOUR INFUSIONS
Cancer Wellness Connections is a non-profit that brings comfort to people with cancer and chronic illness, by way of providing them with wellness-based activities as they are receiving outpatient chemotherapy.
From Reiki, massage, meditation, exercise tips, manicures, to books and games, our program’s services align with ways that the National Cancer Institute suggest coping with the effects of cancer. Our goal is not only to make you more at ease during treatment, but to help you focus on the control you retain regardless of diagnosis—and your ability to continue to live an enriched and fulfilling life.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” ~World Health Organization’s 1948 Constitution
Cancer Wellness Connections is an independent program bringing activities to all people receiving outpatient infusion treatment at 6 Rochester-area clinics. Regardless of type of cancer or chronic illness, regardless of age or gender, these services are available to you and your accompanying support people.
Our program not only designed to comfort and help you within the confines of the infusion room, but also give you tips and techniques that help you moving forward. Focusing on ways to reduce stress, promoting mindfulness and relaxation will help not only during treatment, but beyond as you navigate your new normal.
Activities available year round, Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.—12 p.m.. Check the location calendars for details.
