Cancer Survivor Wellness Program
The Cancer Survivor WelIness Program provides important services in the community at a time when more Mainers are dealing with a cancer diagnosis. According to statistics published in 2013 by the American Cancer Society (ACS), an additional 9,190 Mainers will be diagnosed with cancer this year - making Maine one of the states with the highest incidence rate of cancer in the country. ACS also stated that the 5-year relative survival rate of all cancers diagnosed between 1996 and 2006 is up 65% - meaning more cancer survivors in Maine as well.
Goals & Objectives:
In order to continue to grow expand the capacity of our Cancer Survivor Wellness Program, the Cancer Community Center will: I. Increase the attendance in our WelIness classes from 550 people last fiscal year to 600 people this fiscal year. 2. Increase the average of 14 hours of free Wellness classes each week to 16 hours. 3. Maintain our successful programs while offering new programs as needed and/or requested by our participants.
