Understanding Lymphedema Workshop
September 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Lymphedema is a common side effect of many cancers and their treatments, causing pain and discomfort for many patients. Fortunately, with support and self-care tools, lymphedema can be managed and, in some cases, treated.
You can join the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center on Zoom on Sept. 8 from 1– 2 p.m. to discuss the basics of lymphedema: signs and symptoms, prevention, compression, exercise and self-care strategies. The workshop will be led by Nicole Langstaff, PT, MS, CLT from ReVital Cancer Rehabilitation.
Navigating a cancer diagnosis is difficult in and of itself but finding support and connecting with those who understand adds another layer of challenges, especially when living in a rural area. To help ease the journey through a cancer diagnosis for those living in Central Maine, the Dempsey Center has partnered with Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center to bring their services to the Ellsworth area.
Using the Dempsey Connects virtual platform, clients of Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center will be able to access this program virtually from the comfort of their own home. This online class will allow clients across the state to access a high-quality program and encourage connection between those who have been impacted by cancer.
As with all Dempsey Center and Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center services, this virtual program is provided at no cost and is open to all. Individuals may access this program at the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center if needed.
