Survivor's Group

4th Thursday of every month
For those who have completed their cancer treatment 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Blue Ash Facility

After completing treatment, while part of you might be celebrating, you may find yourself experiencing ongoing concerns. There may still be side effects from treatment such as fatigue, muscle weakness, pain, neuropathy… and you might be surprised that things still aren’t “back to normal,” the way they were before cancer. This group gives you a place to talk through these experiences with other survivors and focus on your ongoing recovery from cancer after the treatment ends.

This workshop is for anyone working to manage changing dynamics in their lives when cancer enters the picture.

The Enneagram is a personality typing and development system that identifies 9 primary patterns of perceiving the world and allows people to better understand their own thoughts, feelings and behavior and is also a valuable tool in increasing insight and understanding in relationships.
