VVMC-Sedona Campus Cancer Center workshop

The Cancer Center at the Sedona Campus of the Verde Valley Medical Center is hosting a free empowerment workshop for cancer patients, survivors, and loved ones on Wednesday, June 25, 2-4 p.m.

Do What Makes You Strong will be facilitated by local resident, best-selling author and cancer survivor, Charlene Costanzo.

The two-hour, experiential workshop is based on what Costanzo learned when she was diagnosed with advanced non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and her oncologist said, "This is a time to call upon strength. Do what makes you strong." Dealing with cancer or any life challenge can be a means to discovering more inner strength, but how? Cancer led Costanzo on a quest for a better understanding of how she and others open to the healing power of our inner gifts. The workshop will be held in the Sedona Campus conference room located at 3700 W. SR 89A. Although there is no charge, attendance is limited. To register, or for more information, please call 204-4160.
