More than 80 participants gathered at St. Mary Medical Center’s Valparaiso Health Center on April 18 for the 2015 Cancer Survivorship Series Surviving to Thriving: Beating Depression After Cancer, an event dedicated to those whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Nancy Beckman, Ph.D., Amy Siston, Ph.D., and Pooja Dave, M.A., members of the University of Chicago’s Psycho-oncology team, presented on combating anxiety and depression after cancer, offering tips to improve mood and the quality of life for patients and their caregivers.

“Treating the mind and spirit is just as important as treating the body,” said Donna Faitak, supervisor at St. Mary Medical Center’s Women’s Diagnostic Center. “Our survivorship series brings together resources and services that patients and their caregivers can utilize to help manage their wellbeing as they journey through and beyond cancer treatment.”
