CSC is proud to announce the launch of Frankly Speaking about Cancer: Living Healthy with Cancer
, an educational program to increase awareness about ways to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle through cancer treatment. By incorporating healthy habits into their daily routines, patients and loved can not only lessen the rigors of treatment but improve their wellbeing during treatment and beyond.
With over 1.5 million new cancer cases expected to be diagnosed in 2012, CSC designed this program to centralize information on four key areas- nutrition, exercise, psychosocial support, and medical management- to help those impacted by cancer feel empowered to collaborate with their health care team and take steps to living healthy.
The program information is presented through medically reviewed website content and a downloadable fact sheet, a special episode CSC’s internet talk show Frankly Speaking About Cancer
, and radio interviews that will be available on a local station near you. The program has received extensive coverage in the media, including on Yahoo! News.
Frankly Speaking About Cancer: Living Healthy with Cancer
is made possible through the collaboration of Bright Pink, the Cancer Legal Resource Center, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, Fight Colorectal Cancer, LIVESTRONG, the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance, the Patient Advocate Foundation, and the Young Survival Coalition and through the generous support of Pfizer, Inc.
