ETMC sponsors Great Getaway

East Texans who have survived cancer are invited to go on the East Texas Medical Center (ETMC) Cancer Institute’s “Great Getaway” retreat scheduled for April 26-28 at Lake Palestine’s Pine Cove.
This event will enable those who have overcome cancer to take it easy with others of their calling, meet and become acquainted with local cancer survivors, refocus and help learn to cope with the challenges of their post-cancer lives.  Any adult diagnosed now or in the past is urged to attend.
“This is a chance to get away from the stress of day-to-day life and enjoy the company of those who have been through similar experiences,” said ETMC Cancer Institute Vice-President Todd Sigmon.  “Heathcare professionals as well as cancer survivors will be on hand to assist with retreat activities.”
Those in attendance will stay in Pine Cove’s comfortable motel-style rooms complete with private baths.  For a $50 registration fee attendees will receive not only lodging, but meals and snacks.  Arrival time will be 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, and departure will be 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
Registration forms and fees must be received by April 8.  Because of limited space priority will be given to first-time guests, and in case financial assistance is needed there are scholarships available.   For more online information call (903) 595-5550 or (800) 541-0592.
