25th Anniversary

Throwback Programs!

Genetics and Cancer Through the Years - RSVP
Wednesday, January 31 • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Hereditary cancer syndromes account for about 10% of all cancer diagnoses.
Identifying families with hereditary risk is important to help the family members
at increased risk for developing cancer to make empowered choices about
cancer prevention and early detection. This program will focus on what
families might benefit from genetic testing and the many advances that have
been made in genetic testing through the years.

 

Reunion: Welcoming Back Your Neglected Self - RSVP
Wednesday, March 28 • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Beginning in childhood and continuing throughout our lives, we
receive messages and teachings that certain parts of who we are,
(our “Selves”), are wrong or bad or unacceptable and need to be
denied or controlled. We learn to hide or neglect our Angry Self, our
Anxious Self, our Exuberant or Creative Self and others for fear of
disapproval or rejection. Being a fully integrated person means having
a positive relationship with all of our Selves, which enables us to strive
for happiness and meaning, particularly when faced with the challenge
and stress of living with cancer. Join artist Jessica Eschen-Goodman
and CSC facilitator John Eschen as we explore through discussion, art
and writing the ways and paths of reuniting our individual Neglected
Selves. No special artistic or writing ability is necessary.

 

From Alternative to Integrative - RSVP
Tuesday, April 24 • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

“Alternative”, “complimentary” or “integrative” have been terms that describe
practices outside of Western medical treatment or approaches used in
conjunction with medical treatments. The field is diverse and encompasses
practices spanning from diet, hypnosis and acupuncture to music and art. Join
Dr. Jill Oberle and Becky Lasater, LCSW, OSW-C, as they discuss integrative
therapies used in palliative care today.
