10 Cities to Participate in Live Well! Life Beyond Cancer Program Sponsored by The Wellness Community and the Lance Armstrong Foundation

Program Helps Cancer Survivors Make Transition from Treatment to


WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ten cities will participate in a new program developed by The Wellness Community (TWC) and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) to help cancer survivors make the transition from active treatment to post-treatment care. According to a 2007 Institute of Medicine report, the 10.5 million cancer survivors in the U.S. face a heavy physical and psychological burden as they transition from cancer patient to survivor. This new program, Live Well! Life Beyond Cancer, will be launched in January 2008 to help fill the gap between cancer treatment and life following cancer.

"The Live Well! Life Beyond Cancer program provides cancer survivors with the information, skills and tools to address exercise, nutrition, emotional health, quality of life and medical management after treatment ends," said Mitch Golant, PhD, senior vice president of The Wellness Community. "Together with the Lance Armstrong Foundation, we are poised to develop a state-of-the-art, evidence-based survivorship program that helps fill the gap between cancer treatment and life beyond cancer."

Live Well! Life Beyond Cancer will be offered in 10 cities across the United States. There is no charge to workshop participants, who will meet for two and one-half hours once a week for six weeks. The program will be held in:

-- Wilmington, DE

-- Walnut Creek, CA

-- Salisbury, MD

-- Indianapolis, IN

-- Redondo Beach, CA

-- Knoxville, TN

-- Bedminster, NJ

-- Westlake Village, CA

-- Miami, FL

-- Phoenix, AZ

Expert panelists at the six sessions such as physicians, nutritionists and fitness experts will discuss various topics including:

-- Exercise after treatment

-- Specialized nutrition for people after cancer treatment

-- The need for continued emot
