The Cancer Support Community at Monmouth Medical Center Presents “Woman to Woman: Cancer & Sexuality”

06/06/2017

Long Branch, N.J. – Aside from the emotional stress cancer and its treatments can cause, many women with cancer also must cope with changes to their body’s appearance. Changes can be short or long term, ranging from hair loss to changes in hormones that affect libido, causing some women to become less comfortable with their bodies. event

To help women in cancer treatment and post treatment deal with these issues, the Cancer Support Community at Monmouth Medical Center is holding a workshop “Woman to Woman: Cancer & Sexuality,” on Monday, June 19 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Monmouth Medical Center’s Maysie-Stroock Pavilion in Suite ST-007, located at 300 Second Avenue in Long Branch.

Co-facilitators Cindy Tracy, CYI, and Anita Pfisterer, LCSW, will cover topics such as sexuality and self-care practices after a cancer diagnosis.

The women-only workshop is designed to provide a safe and comfortable environment for a candid discussion on how cancer treatments can impact sexual interest and response, function and energy levels. Women in treatment and post treatment will have the opportunity to ask questions, learn more about their changing bodies and receive emotional support from others.

Registration for “Woman to Woman: Cancer & Sexuality” is required. Please call the Cancer Support Community at 732-923-6090.
