About this group

Thinking and memory difficulties are the second most common symptom of cancer patients after treatment. These symptoms persist for years after treatment. Symptoms can also interfere with everyday life and cause additional stress.

We are offering workshops designed to improve thinking and memory abilities in cancer survivors.

Practical, everyday skills will be taught in a group setting. Learn strategies that may help address daily thinking difficulties and improve your memory. Your participation may help other survivors struggling with similar problems.

What is involved?
-Evaluations of your memory
-Seven, 1 hour group workshop sessions
-A set of questionnaires

Is there a cost to participate?
No, the workshops are free of charge.
