The last meeting for our cancer survivors and caretakers group was on Tuesday. It was a really awesome meeting where we discussed nutrition. The lecture on Nutrition was delivered by Moncrief Cancer Institute, which is a wonderful organization, doing wonderful things.
Moncrief now has a mobile cancer survivor clinic for survivors and patients. They offer exercise support. They have clinical support. They can tell you about healthy eating habits. They also offer cancer screening.
This is huge. I had a very small adenocarcinoma four years ago that put me in hypochondriac mode. It was removed surgically, so I guess I shouldn’t worry so much, but when you have ever heard the word cancer said to you, you really do. Every time I have had a fear I have hit a brick wall getting help. I have been uninsured, as so many other people have. This is really huge.
Cost always is a major factor in any type of health care issue. Most services have no cost. I am excited.
This mobile clinic will be in Corsicana at Brookshire’s parking lot twice a month. The month of June, it will be the 11th and 23rd. I am not sure if you have to have an appointment. The phone number is 800-405-7739. The number you text “enroll” to is 29217 so you can recieve updates of when they will be in town.
Other counties served besides Navarro are: Tarrant, Ellis, Erath, Hood, Johnson, Parker, Sommervell, and Wise.
I am not really sure what other information I may be leaving out. If you have any questions, you can call the number listed above.
I wish you all wellness on your journeys.
Much love, Steph and Sam’s Voice.
