While medical technology has helped us to better understand cancer, there are still many unanswered questions.  My family has had to deal with cancer.  My grandmother had stomach cancer and my mother had leukemia, which I thought was a “childhood” cancer.  I know first hand that there are so many questions about the illness, how to treat it and how it will affect your loved one.  Having that knowledge will allow you to react and assist during this difficult time.  Thanks to St. Luke’s Hospital for stepping up and offering answers to often difficult to ask questions.  Consider attending the free evening to gather valuable information.

Mark Tuesday, June 17 from 5-7p on your calendar for this free evening of information to you and your family.  Understanding Cancer is a survivorship lecture that is designed to benefit patients, family members and anyone interested in learning more about cancer and cancer treatment.

The series begins with Chemotherapy’s Impact: How It Affects Your Body and Mind. You will meet oncologist Anne Silva-Benedict, MD, and psychologist Deb Viner, PsyD, as they conduct an informative talk about cancer and chemotherapy. Dr. Silva-Benedict will discuss long- and short-term physical effects, such as bone issues, chemo brain and fatigue. Deb Viner will explore how cancer and treatment can affect the mind and emotions. Following the presentation, there will be time for you to ask questions.

Your evening will begin at 5p with a light dinner and refreshments. There is no charge, but seating is limited. Registration is easy.  Just call Tina Roberts at 218.249.5468 or email her at
