Over a dozen FREE programs offered in a variety of topics for anyone affected by cancer
FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (July 16, 2010)—When people think of the “Big C,” humor is not the first thing that comes to mind. However, Cancer Wellness at Piedmont Fayette Hospital continues to pursue its mission to turn cancer into the “little c” by prescribing a bit of laughter, in addition to many regular classes and sessions for those affected by cancer.
At 2 p.m., Wednesday, July 21 and August 25, Dennis Buttimer, M.Ed., RYT, will lead a special session entitled “Finding Humor In It All.” Participants will learn to access their humor and improve their health. Laughing is good for recovery and humor can be the “best medicine” as it boosts the immune system, improves circulation and improves mood. A healthy lunch will be served in the Wellness Café. Call 770-719-5860 to register.
Also featured this summer is “Writing For Recovery,” where participants tap their inner wisdom through the power and creativity of the written word. Research has shown that writing in a journal can be a strong ally in the healing process. Facilitated by Angela Buttimer, LPC, participants discuss the best strategies to get pen to paper and practice a variety of creative writing techniques to broaden their journaling skills in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Previous journaling experience is not required. Sessions are on Friday, July 23, August 6 and 20 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. A healthy lunch will be served in the Wellness Café. Registration is not required.
