Certain health behavior practices have been proven to reduce recurrence or improve quality of life after breast cancer. We will discuss the role of exercise, stress reduction, and diet in the post-treatment care of breast cancer survivors.
We have finished our book! A compilation of our workshops and lectures on health behaviors that improve outcomes after breast cancer. New Life After Cancer’s book “A Prescription for Wellness” is now available through Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Prescription-Wellness-Behaviors-Improve-Outcomes/dp/153714555X/
Please check it out. We hope that it will be a useful tool to help both cancer survivors and health care providers have ready access to the evidenced-based literature on health and wellness after treatment.

Designed for small groups of like-minded survivors, centering around a particular issue, in an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and enjoyment, we believe that “one size does not fit all.” Thus, each retreat is different, matching the unique needs of the group through specially designed courses.
Our workshops merge discussion of the scientific literature and hands-on activities related to subjects that have been proven to improve outcomes after cancer treatment. We provide the tools and information to guide the transition from medical care to self-care. Workshops meet weekly for 4-6 week courses or as day-long seminars.
