Survivor Times Newsletter

A newsletter for cancer survivors, by cancer survivors.

This is a newsletter full of anecdotes, personal stories, triumphs and tribulations by cancer survivors, for cancer survivors. It is meant to give cancer survivors and their caregivers a voice and a place to inspire others.

Beginning with our first issue, Survivor Times has evolved into a glorious creative offering, with diverse reading options to soothe and stimulate your mind, body and spirit.

The Dr. Diane Barton Complementary Medicine Program is a part of the many clinical and educational programs and services offered through MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper. This program is committed to providing cancer survivors with access to an array of exciting complementary medicine experiences. These fabulously creative offerings serve as tools for cancer survivors. Our programs are designed to help them discover ways to cope with the stress and anxiety of their diagnosis, and to alleviate some of the side effects of their treatment - focusing on healing the body, mind and spirit. My goal through this program is to bring together, empower and inspire survivors and encourage them to incorporate complementary medicine into their lives. The inception of this newsletter is the outcome of one such special program offered throughout the year.

If you have any questions, would like to join the Survivor Times team or submit an article, please contact me at mehr-bonnie@cooperhealth.edu, or call 856.325.6646.
