Hospital launches program for survivors

I wrote this yesterday for my newspaper blog. It's another in an occasional series on my breast cancer journey.

DERBY - My daughter and I attended a reception Thursday to kick off a free survivorship program at the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital.

What better time to launch the initiative than during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? 

I was among almost 20 breast cancer survivors there who learned about participating in the program.
Griffin will be scheduling workshops on topics such as rehab, pastoral care, nutrition, and exercise.

I'm looking forward to being a part of it, and sharing my experiences with readers here on the blog and in the newspaper.
