Fremont Area Medical Center and the American Cancer Society are pleased to offer I Can Cope®, a free series of educational programs for adults facing cancer – either personally, or as a friend or family caregiver.
I Can Cope provides information about cancer diagnosis and treatment and offers practical help in coping with some of the emotional issues resulting from a cancer diagnosis.
The October program, “Battling Breast Cancer”, is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9, from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m., on the third floor of Fremont Area Medical Center’s Health Park Plaza, located at 450 East 23rd Street. Presented by Renee Coates and Julie Martin, radiation therapists at Fremont Area Medical Center, this session will cover the basics about breast cancer —risks, detection, and treatment options.
One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States. Although many risk factors may increase your chance of developing breast cancer, it is not yet known exactly how some of these risk factors cause cells to become cancerous.
Each I Can Cope class is a stand-alone support program, so you may attend as many or as few as you like. There is no charge for attending an I Can Cope program, and a light meal will be provided. Please call (402) 727-3384 to register or for more information.
