    WEDNESDAY, April 23, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The deaths of well-known people offer an opportunity to educate the general public about disease detection and prevention, a new study suggests. Researchers surveyed 1,400 American men and women after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 and learned that more than one-third of them sought information about his cause of death or information about cancer in general soon after his death was reported.

East Texas cancer survivors can participate in the East Texas Medical Center Cancer Institute's annual "Great Getaway" retreat April 24-26 at Pine Cove on Lake Palestine.

The retreat gives cancer survivors a chance to relax and refocus, and provides opportunities for meeting others who share some of the same concerns associated with living with cancer. Any adult who has been diagnosed with cancer is invited to attend.

"This is a chance to get away from the stress of day-to-day life and enjoy the company of others who have been through similar experiences," said Todd Sigmon, ETMC Cancer Institute vice president.  "Healthcare professionals, as well as cancer survivors, will be on hand to assist with retreat activities."

Pine Cove offers comfortable, motel-style rooms that have private baths. All lodging, meals and snacks are included in the $50 registration fee.  Arrival time begins at 1 p.m. Tuesday, and the retreat will conclude at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

Registration forms and fees must be received by April 11. Space is limited and priority will be given to first-time attendees. A limited number of scholarships are available if you need financial assistance. For more information, please call the ETMC Cancer Institute at (903) 595-5550 or (800) 541-0592.
