Survivorship means different things to different people, but it often describes the process of living with, through, and beyond cancer. According to this definition, survivorship begins at diagnosis and includes people who continue to receive treatment, either to reduce the risk of cancer recurrence or to manage their cancer as a chronic disease. No matter how it is defined, survivorship is unique for every patient. As more people are surviving cancer, it is becoming increasingly more important to address life changes after cancer treatment.
Benefits of FVHO Hope Support Group
The FVHO Hope Support Group is a monthly offering open to everyone affected by cancer. This is for all patients, family members and friends at any stage of a cancer journey. Attendees do not need to be FVHO patients so you are encouraged to invite others to attend with you.
FVHO Hope features a different presenter or activity on a variety of topics to help connect, uplift and rebuild all those affected by cancer. Some months, depending on speaker availability, an afternoon session will also be held from 1:30 p.m.-3 p.m.
FVHO Hope meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in our Health and Wellness Center at our Appleton location.
