Ford Cancer Treatment Center seeks input from survivors for new program 

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

 Georgetown, S.C. —The Francis B. Ford Cancer Treatment Center of Georgetown Hospital System is developing a program to enhance healing from cancer and is seeking input from the community.   

Individuals who are being treated for cancer, individuals who are in remission and post-treatment (for any number of years), and individuals who are caring for a cancer survivor are encouraged to attend one of several meetings scheduled for March. Survivorship is considered to start at diagnosis.   

The meetings will last one hour and provide an opportunity for survivors and caregivers to participate in small group discussions on what it takes to survive and what helps or hinders healing. Email and phone surveys are also available for anyone unable to attend a session. Information supplied by participants will help set program priorities.

The schedule is below:  

Saturday, March 23, 10 - 11 a.m.

Holy Cross Episcopal Church, Pawleys Island  

Monday, March 25, 6 - 7 p.m.

Wachesaw Conference Center, Murrells Inlet  

Tuesday, March 26, noon – 1 p.m.

Bethel AME Church, Georgetown  

Space is limited, so please register for a particular date by emailing or calling Jennifer O'Neill at joneill@georgetownhospitalsystem.org843-520-8172 or Tyiese Winns at twinns@georgetownhospitalsystem.org 843-520-8260.
