Nobody wants to have a chronic long-term illness. Unfortunately, most of us will experience two or more of these conditions during our lives. The Living Well with CANCER: Thriving & Surviving Self-Management Program is provided to help cancer patients in treatment, cancer survivors, and people with chronic conditions as a result of their cancer journey explore healthy ways to live with the physical or mental changes they are experiencing. The 6-week workshop addresses what happens with most chronic health problems. Chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, depression, liver disease, bipolar disorder, emphysema, or any one of a host of others, cause most people to experience fatigue as well as to lose physical strength and endurance. In addition, they may cause emotional distress, such as frustration, anger, anxiety, or a sense of helplessness. 
 
Health is soundness of body and mind, and a healthy life is one rich in self-management tools and resources. Therefore, a healthy way to live with side effects of cancer treatments is to work at overcoming the physical, mental, and emotional problems caused by the experience.
 
Program participants will learn how to function at their best regardless of the difficulties life presents. The program goal is to aid participants in achieving the things they want to do and to get pleasure from life. That is what this Living Well program is all about.
 
Each participant will get help in finding the sills needed in order to follow their individual path to improving their quality of life. There are no miracles or cures provided in the program, however, participants will find hundreds of tips and ideas to make their life easier. The advice presented comes from physicians and other health professionals.
