River Hospital, Claxton-Hepburn to Host Retreat for “Women Cancer Warriors”

Full Day of information, relaxation and humor will help women with cancer diagnoses

Even warriors need a little rest and relaxation sometimes…

On Saturday, April 8, River Hospital and Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center will host their 2nd annual “Live Your Best Life” retreat for women cancer warriors. This day-long event will be held at the Edgewood Resort in Alexandria Bay, and registration begins at 9 a.m.

“Live Your Best Life” will help attendees manage the stress of a cancer diagnosis, providing them with tools to improve their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. The day will include education by oncologists and psychologists, as well as opportunities for yoga, Reiki, massage and mindfulness exercises.

The day will conclude with some humor from “The Boobie Sisters,” a group of breast cancer survivors who use humor to spread hope to others fighting the disease. This group of ladies — who together represent over 132 years of survivorship — will share songs that will bring laughter and inspiration.

A full schedule of the day’s events can be found on Claxton-Hepburn or River Hospital‘s websites.

There is no charge for this event and a continental breakfast and lunch buffet will be served. Bus transportation will be available from Massena, Ogdensburg, Canton and Gouverneur. Reservations for transportation must be made when reserving your spot for the event.

Limited space is available. Reservations must be made no later than March 31 by calling 315-393-2314.
