Beginning July 14th, a new group for Family, Friends,
and Caregivers of individuals with cancer will meet at 5:30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at CRCFL.
Caregivers and others concerned about a loved one with cancer are welcome to join us. Discussion topics will vary
and include taking care of yourself while taking care of others, how to be helpful & supportive to an individual with cancer, & other topics. Light refreshments will be served. Please join us!
Join us for Fun, Food & Friends at the Third Tuesday Gathering!
The new Third Tuesday Gathering is up and running!
Survivors, caregivers and friends come together to enjoy each other’s company, laugh and partake in a little education. The gathering is informal and refreshments are served. We are open to new ideas on what you would like “your gathering” to be. Upcoming topics include how to talk to your family, loved ones and medical care team, exercise and cancer, and a fun Improv theater workshop to express yourself in a creative way. If you have a topic or activity you would like to suggest for the Gathering, please contact Monica at email@example.com. We would love to have YOU and your loved ones join us. We meet the Third Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:00 pm at the CRC house. “Your next gathering” is Tuesday, July 21st.

Bob Riter’s articles in the Ithaca Journal last month
Is there a link between stress and cancer? (NY Times). This article is now about 10 years old, but it’s still one of the best reviews of what we know about stress and cancer. It’s common to assume that stress causes cancer, but that assumption isn’t supported by much evidence.
Anyone affected by cancer (including long-term survivors and caregivers) are encouraged to join us. All classes free of charge. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. CRC & Lifelong Collaboration: Strength Training
