    ‘Life-changing’ program helps cancer survivors reduce risk of reoccurrence

    Harrisburg, Pa. - Surviving cancer is a milestone. For some, it is cause for celebration. For others, it is the start of a new chapter marked by fear and anxiety that the cancer will come back. Receiving support and guidance from people who’ve been there can make all the difference in the world.

    A groundbreaking Anti-Cancer Lifestyle Program, offered at Capital Blue health and wellness stores in central Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley, is designed for cancer survivors who want to reduce their risk of reoccurrence. The 12-week program is led by a team of health education professionals. The sessions focus on four areas that have a strong tie to cancer survivorship: diet, exercise, mindset and environment.

    Participants who have completed the program have called it a life-changer.

    “This class is, in large part, what got me through my cancer treatment,” said Maura Carbaugh, a cancer survivor. “Everything was so pertinent to what I was going through that it really was like a light in a dark tunnel. Not only was the information paramount to living your best anti-cancer lifestyle, but the materials and reference resources were invaluable.”

    The Anti-Cancer Lifestyle Program requires a 12-week commitment. Each session includes an anti-cancer meal. Participants also receive the book Anticancer: A New Way of Life by Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, a pedometer, a fitness band and a workbook. Anyone who is a cancer survivor is welcome to attend, but registration is required. Space is limited and the cost is $120.
