  • At Boca Raton Regional Hospital’s Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute, we realize that care for cancer patients shouldn’t stop when treatment ends. That’s why we’ve developed seminars to help patients who have recently completed therapy transition into survivorship.

    Presented by The Thomas E. Oxley Center for Cancer Survivorship & Wellness, our Cancer Survivorship Education Series provides patients - and their families and friends - with a wealth of information that is important in this phase of their lives. Held in the Institute’s Jean & David Blechman Conference Center on the third floor from 4:00pm to 5:15pm, the interactive sessions feature oncology specialists and are free and open to the community.

    Your treatment has ended. But your care should never stop.

    For more information or to register, call 561-955-5406.

  • Moving Forward is a program at the Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute designed for women with a history of breast cancer who are seeking ongoing wellness and health education, resources and support. The program offers patients a level of security and peace of mind to relieve anxiety, knowing they will be followed in a dedicated program. Typically, women who sign up have completed their breast cancer treatments and are not currently under the care of a local oncologist or breast surgeon. For breast cancer survivors who are on active treatment or within one year post treatment, the Lynn Cancer Institute offers support programs and survivorship classes. Click here for additional information on Moving Forward.

  • A growing number of cancer patients are utilizing yoga as a means of coping with the physical and psychological impact of their disease. Oncology yoga is usually held in small groups and is geared to the patients’ needs and limitations. Mindful mediation and stretching can assist in decreasing pain, anxiety and enhance your survivorship journey.

    The Thomas E. Oxley Center for Cancer Survivorship & Wellness at the Lynn Cancer Institute offers yoga classes for our survivors (LCI patients who have completed active treatment) - both men and women.

    When: Offered weekly.

  • The Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute is pleased to introduce oncology acupuncture to its growing list of cancer support services. Acupuncture is used to balance and harmonize the mind and body. It is a safe and effective way to naturally treat many health concerns for people at any age. It involves the use of sterile, single-use, needles to stimulate one or more points on the body to promote the flow of internal energy.

    Onco-acupuncture is a safe and effective way to naturally treat many health concerns at any age. Reduction of oncology-related side effects may include:

    » Dry mouth
    » Loss of taste
    » Depression
    » Nausea
    » Vomiting
    » Anxiety
    » Fatigue
    » Peripheral neuropathy
    » Headache
    » Hot flashes
    » Pain

    Community acupuncture, also known as group acupuncture, is often used as a way to introduce new patients to acupuncture or as a more affordable treatment option. Many of those who practice and participate feel strongly that an additional benefit of community/group acupuncture is the healing energy generated in the room during a group session.

    Fridays
    Location: Lynn Cancer Institute, Thomas E. Oxley Gym, 3rd Floor
    Cost: $20 per session. Treatments are approximately 30 minutes.
    Call 561-955-5406 for availability and to book your treatment.
