ETMC Cancer Institute sponsors ‘Great Getaway’ retreat

Posted: Updated:

East Texas cancer survivors can participate in East Texas Medical Center Cancer Institute's annual "Great Getaway" retreat April 23-25 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," according to Sandy Campbell, camp coordinator for the ETMC Cancer Institute. "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 10. 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.
