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.
On March 7, 2015, the Women’s Respite Program will sponsor a half-day for women who are caregivers to adults in their home. Usual examples are women caring for a spouse, an elderly parent, a sibling, or an adult child with a disability. If you are such a woman, this half-day is designed to give you an opportunity to relax in a quiet and peaceful setting at the Center of Renewal near Lewiston, NY.
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.
Grandmothers with low incomes who are raising their grandchildren are invited to apply for a respite at the Stella Niagara Center of Renewal from June 6 to June 8.
The respite starts on Friday at 3 pm and ends on Sunday at 3 pm. If you do not drive, or need a ride, we can help with transportation.
There is no charge for this weekend of quiet and relaxation, but we ask for a $10 donation.
FOR MORE INFORMATION CALL 893-0931
