Coconut Telegraph

Marking a new milestone for cancer support and hope, a partnership between JFCS of the Suncoast and Sarasota Memorial Hospital (SMH) that started one year ago has now brought hope and relief to more than 158 people and their families. A recent JFCS and SMH Cancer Wellness Celebration event held at HealthFit, powered by Sarasota Memorial Hospital, showcased the program and benefits to the general public.  More than 40 people dealing with cancer and their family members attended, providing them with a dose of hope, aid and support that others have found through the JFCS and SMH classes. Services include a variety of gentle exercise, wellness classes and cancer support groups. Workshops are also offered on nutrition, cancer and genetics, lymphedema and other topics relevant to cancer patients. All services are offered at no cost to adult patients, caregivers and families affected by a cancer diagnosis. ­
