Take a look at our roster of groups!

New Support Group for Caregivers

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 monica@crcfl.net.
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.

An Interview with Cornelia Rea and Vacationing with Cancer (highlighting Kristina Burke)

Cancer in the News

The Irresponsible Killing Cancer Talk (SLATE). Headlines about cancer are usually premature and misleading.

Living with Cancer: Being Mortal
(Susan Gubar, NY Times)

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.

Blood test might detect deadly pancreatic cancer in early stages (NBC News)

Cancer doctors offer way to compare medicines, including by cost (NY Times)

To recur, to sleep. There’s a rub for cancer patients. (Medscape). Cancer survivors often worry about the possibility of a recurrence. That’s not conducive to good sleep.

10 Best Cancer Fighting Songs Ever
(I’m sure people will disagree with the
choices, but it’s fun to think of which songs
you would choose).

Researchers in the Comparative Cancer Biology Program at Cornell (on the Ithaca campus). It’s an impressive group. And there are many other cancer researchers at Cornell as well. We’re delighted to collaborate with many of them.

We’re proud that all donations to CRCFL stay local

It’s easy to donate to the Cancer Resource Center through
GiveGab, PayPal, Amazon Smile, Goodshop, Ebay Giving Works.
