Dana‐Farber's Adult Survivorship Program offers free classes, seminars, support groups, and individual appointments to help you and your loved ones find ways to cope with the transition from active treatment to long-term survivorship. Our programs include:
This is a one-hour educational seminar for adult cancer patients who have recently completed treatment, and their families and friends. Learn what to expect after treatment ends, find out about services and resources to help during the transition, and connect with other cancer survivors.
This series of 90-minute sessions, held every month, focuses on techniques and tools to help you and your loved ones adjust to life after treatment. We cover a different topic each month, ranging from managing fear of recurrence, to figuring out how to make healthy habits work for you. You can participate in person or join via telephone.
Classes are held Wednesday mornings, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, in the Blum Patient and Family Resource Center, on the first floor of Dana-Farber's Yawkey Center for Cancer Care. You can participate in person or by telephone (with prior registration).
In 2013, classes will be held on the following dates:
Each class is free and open to all patients and their family members. Registration is appreciated. To sign up for any class, contact Sarah Singer, MSW, LICSW, at 617-632-3751 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This six-part class (held once a week for six weeks) gives survivors and their loved ones tips for managing stress, and teaches strategies for coping with common challenges, such as fear of recurrence, difficulty sleeping, and appetite changes — all in a supportive, educational environment. We encourage attendees to try to commit to all six sessions.
This monthly book club is offered in collaboration with Dana-Farber's Blum Patient and Family Resource Center. We read mostly non-fiction and often go "beyond the book" to discuss themes that commonly affect survivors after treatment ends. You can participate in person or by telephone.
