Local breast cancer nonprofit, Women Supporting Women is now offering FREE one-on-one nutritional wellness sessions to women and men diagnosed with breast cancer. This program is headed up by WSW Mentoring Coordinator and Co-Founder Sue Revelle. Revelle is an RN with 30+ years experience which has ultimately benefited the WSW organization for the past 23 years.
“This is an opportunity for the cancer survivor to talk about their concerns and/or issues regarding stress, weight loss, nutrition questions, etc.” Revelle said, “For one hour we can discuss topics like salt intake, how to read nutritional labels, the differences between a probiotic and prebiotic, the importance of Vitamin C and Calcium, and other important information to help them live a healthier lifestyle.”
Also available are monthly group sessions. This group session allows survivors to share what they have done differently to change their lifestyle that could help others. The next group session is scheduled for Wednesday, March 29th at 10:30.
Survivors interested in either the individual wellness coaching or the group sessions should call the WSW office at 410-548-7880. Funding for this program is provided by a grant through the Maryland Agricultural Education and Rural Development Assistance Fund (MAERDAF).
Women Supporting Women is a local, grass-roots non-profit organization dedicated to providing awareness, education and support to all those who are affected by breast cancer. With no national ties or funding, they rely completely on our community to help provide free services to our neighbors, friends and families right here on Delmarva.
