Cancer patients and survivors often face painful, function-limiting consequences brought on by acute treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and/or surgery. Cancer rehabilitation can help those individuals regain strength, physical function and the independence they may have lost due to cancer or its treatment.

Treatment plans are tailored to a patient’s needs and address common side effects such as:

  • Joint aches
  • Neck or back pain
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Loss of strength
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Radiation fibrosis
  • Lymphedema
  • Muscle spasms, cramps or achiness
  • Bowel and bladder disorders
  • Difficulty speaking or swallowing
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Balance or walking difficulties

I grew up in Maine. I love to travel. New Zealand is my favorite destination. Yes I went bungee jumping, and skydiving. I scuba dive too.  Yoga, nature, and reading are my self care activities.  I would rather have experiences than things.  I can appear extroverted at work, but really I’m an introvert.  I would love to know what books you have loved reading.  Book club anyone?

My Dad was in Army so I traveled all over the US and world as a child. I then served as an Army Officer for 8 years during which I was deployed to Iraq for 15 months. I love to travel and experience different cultures. I enjoy all things outdoors: hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, camping. I also love to read Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels and cross-stitching. I have 3 cats who are my fur-babies, including one I brought back from Iraq!
