She's Crafty!

Pink buttonsHelp make someone else's chemo session a warm experience. On September 17, 7PM-8:30PM, we will be making hand tied, fabric blankets for the chemo rooms in several facilities. Survivors know that these rooms are often chilly, so we're working to make it a little more comfortable. Join us at the office for a fun evening of crafting, snacks, and conversation!

Clinical Trial: Treatment for Persistently Fatigued Cancer Survivors

tiredIU School of Medicine is conducting a clinical trial for those suffering with Cancer-Related Fatigue.  You may qualify if you are 18 or older, have been diagnosed with stage 0-III breast cancer, finished chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy between 9/11/07 and 6/11/12 (those still taking hormonal therapy may participate) and are not receiving hospice care.  Participants will receive an 8-week group treatment and all associated materials at no cost and will learn new skills that are designed to be beneficial in managing fatigue. Participants will be compensated for their time.  If you are interested in learning more about this study or if you have questions, please call Dr. Shelley Johns at 317.630.7690.
