Evansville Cancer Center/Vantage Oncology Hosts “Talking Man-to-Man” Prostate Support Group Meeting, April 8th
Physical Therapy Assistant Stephanie Retter of Deaconess Clinic to Discuss Fighting Fatigue with Exercise
EVANSVILLE, Ind. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2014, 233,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 29,480 will lose their lives to it. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it. With advanced surgical and radiation therapy treatments, more than 2.5 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer are still alive today.
In continuing to increase awareness about the prevention, detection and treatment of prostate cancer, Evansville Cancer Center/Vantage Oncology (ECC/VO) is welcoming special guest speaker and physical therapist assistant Stephanie Retter of Deaconess Clinic to its monthly “Talking Man-to-Man” prostate support group meeting on Tuesday, April 8th from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meeting will take place at ECC/VO located on 700 North Burkhardt Road in Evansville. Retter will discuss and answer questions from attendees about how exercise can help fight fatigue during prostate cancer treatments.
The meeting is free and refreshments will be served. Attendees are encouraged to bring their significant other. For more information about the event, please call Joann Zeller at (812) 858-2266 and visit www.evansvilleradiationoncology.com.
