Cancer Support Group Now Available

Prairie Lakes Cancer Center is introducing a new cancer support group for the Watertown area community. The support group is open to those living with cancer, those who’ve survived and caregivers.

The group will meet the fourth Tuesday of every month (subject to change for holidays) at 5:30 pm in the West Conference Room at Prairie Lakes Hospital. Meetings include a speaker presentation, opportunity to meet others in similar situations, and cancer education and insight.

October 24th Topic:  Eat Well, Feel Well: Optimizing Your Nutrition

Fueling your body adequately is hard, especially when it comes to the potential challenges of eating during cancer treatment. Wading through the myths, promises, and misconceptions of nutrition in the media and social groups can be overwhelming to say the least. Join your PLHS dietitian to get your questions answered and decide what’s right for you by exploring myths, truths, tips, and practical methods to maintaining strength and quality of life.

November 28th Topic: Stress and Self Care: Optimizing Your Health

Join us as we learn about recognizing stress, the importance of self care and how to cope with cancer in your daily life.


To register and for upcoming support group topics and dates call Shauna Van Dusseldorp, LSW at 605-882-6800 or click here.
