Cancer Center Wellness Programs

Beyond Treatment

We believe mind/body therapies can improve the quality of life for some cancer patients and their families. They are not a substitute for proven cancer treatments. We are pleased to offer convenient, confidential and thoughtfully selected mind/body medicine programs. If you are in the midst of active treatment or in follow up, you are welcome to participate. There is much more to recovering from cancer than simply completing treatment. Much of the challenge occurs after surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are long over.

Grief Recovery Program

One of the least acknowledged and least addressed concerns in our society is GRIEF: The normal and natural reaction to loss. Whether your loss is from death of a loved one, divorce or end of a relationship, loss of career, or loss of health, this program will guide those who wish to resolve their loss issues and move beyond their grief to a richer quality of life. This program is facilitated by Cammie Byrd, LICSW and Certified Grief Recovery Specialist. This 12-week program is offered to Lowell General Hospital Cancer Center patients/families in the spring and fall. Space is limited and registration is required. For questions or to register please call Cammie Byrd, LICSW at 978-937-6129
