MOBILE, Alabama – The challenges of undergoing chemotherapy can be daunting, but inspiring speaker Cookie Aftergut wants to turn cancer survivors into cancer “thrivers.” Her program, called Chemoflage, is geared toward helping women live happier and healthier lives despite a cancer diagnosis.
Aftergut is bringing her Chemoflage program to the Strada Patient Care Center in Mobile on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018, and the USA Baldwin County Campus in Fairhope on Wednesday, Jan. 31. Both sessions are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The free program is open to all women who have had a cancer diagnosis.
Participants will receive suggestions on a wide variety of topics, from nutrition to relaxation techniques and fashion/makeup suggestions. Aftergut, a cancer survivor, formed the nonprofit Chemoflage Inc. after being honored as a 2006 Yoplait Champion.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to hear about the experiences of a cancer survivor and learn ways to cope better with the journey,” said Cathy Tinnea, manager of patient-centered services at USA Mitchell Cancer Institute.
