The Phillips Family Cancer Center Offers Free Cancer Wellness Programming for all Men and Women Cancer Patients, Survivors and Caregivers on the East End

September 19, 2019

Southampton, New York—The Phillips Family Cancer Center is rolling-out a year-round, on-going schedule of free programs specifically curated for men and women who have been diagnosed with cancer, including those undergoing radiation or medical oncology treatments, or who are in remission. The classes, workshops, support groups, and services are produced and presented free to cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers on the East End by Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Wellness Institute.

“Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event for the patient, the patient’s family and friends,” said Jessica Swiatocha, FNP-BC, MSN, Manager of Wellness and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation & Cardiology NP Services at Stony Brook Southampton Hospital. “Our goal is to provide a broad spectrum of programs, classes, and groups that will deliver support throughout every stage of the cancer journey to help enhance healing by improving mind and body strength as well as overall well-being.”

Research shows that a strong support system can help improve the patient experience. Patients get stronger, have better endurance, and less depression.

Current topics and classes that are offered by The Phillips Family Cancer Center include support groups; nutrition education; singing (no prior experience necessary); exercise; yoga; reiki; aqua-ize; and boxing! Many more workshops are in development. While all the programming is free, registration is required as space is limited.
