Viki will be hosting a breast cancer lecture at The Cancer Support Community in Greater Miami on July 14, 2010 from 6-8pm EST.

The Cancer Support Community-Greater Miami (formerly known as The Wellness Community-Greater Miami) is part of a national organization that has been providing free services to adult cancer patients and their loved ones for 28 years. The first Wellness Community opened in Santa Monica California in 1982. In July 2009, The Wellness Community-National and Gilda’s Club Worldwide joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community.
Today, the Cancer Support Community provides the highest quality emotional and social support through a network of nearly 50 local affiliates, more than 100 satellite locations and online. To find a community-based center in your area, visit the Cancer Support Community can help.

It’s a place where both patients and family members will find support, education and hope. Support groups address emotional issues for patients and families. Educational workshops get important questions answered in a non-clinical setting. Stress management programs enhance health and well being. Every program is offered free of charge. All are lead by professionals licensed in their fields of expertise.

The comfortable, homelike environment at the Cancer Support Community makes sharing and mutual support easy.

They do not offer medical treatments, alternative treatments, or hospice care. Their services are offered as a compliment to conventional treatment, although anyone undergoing any kind of care is welcome. People come at diagnosis, during or at the end of treatment, at recurrence or several years out of treatment. They all come to learn they are not alone in their fight–whether for physical, emotional or spiritual recovery. Together, they regain a sense of control over their lives and ultimately discover that hope is a valuable tool irrespective of the stage of disease.

Have a kind and respectful day.
