CMHS Seminar to Deal with Coping with Cancer during Holidays

Ventura California, 11/14/2011

Cancer patients and their loved ones are invited to learn ways to cope with cancer during the holidays during a free seminar the Community Memorial Health System’s Psychological Services is holding on Monday, Nov. 28.

Jody Giacopuzzi, a licensed clinical social worker, will facilitate the seminar that will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in CMH’s Cancer Resource Center, 2900 Loma Vista Road, Suite 105.

The holidays are traditionally viewed as a time to celebrate; however people with cancer and their loved ones may feel “out of step” from the rest of the world during the season. Issues cancer patients face include:

  • How to take care of the holiday rush and themselves at the same time;
  • How to celebrate when they have so many other things on their minds;
  • What will their life be like next year?

The seminar will allow cancer patients to meet with others facing cancer to share and learn from each other.

For more information or to make a reservation, call 805-652-5459.
