Respite for Women with Cancer Scheduled for March 20 to 22, 2015

January 6, 2015

The annual Respite for Women with Cancer will take place the weekend of March 20 to 22 at the Center of Renewal on the Stella Niagara campus, near Lewiston, NY.

The Program is available to women in all stages of cancer, and we include women in remission. Women should be well enough to walk down long hallways. Activities include arts and crafts, massage therapy, movie nights, plus plenty of time to rest and get to know the other women. If you’ve attended one of these Respites in the past, you can apply to attend again.

There is no fee, but we ask for a $10 contribution.

To attend, you need to complete a brief application. Call for info or application: 716-893-0931.2015 chemo flier2015 Application

There will be a licensed massage therapist who can provide a chair massage for a separate fee.

The day’s fee is $25 and includes lunch (but does not include massage). Scholarships are available. For more info, call 716-893-0931. Reservation is required.
