If you are living in Chicago, or the greater Chicagoland area, it doesn’t need to be said that it is nearly freezing outside. With limitations on outdoor activity to provide leisure, fitness and relaxation, Chicagoans need to look inward to find replacement activities.
Gilda’s Club Chicago, an organization tailored to men, women and children diagnosed with cancer and their familes and friends, sponsors indoor activites centered around wellness and relaxation.
Yoga, Tai Chi, Cooking and Music Relaxation are only a few of the free classes that they offer. If you or your family are within the cancer community, this may be a great opportunity for you to unwind and fight the urge to hibernate. Check out their calender for upcoming classes and workshops.
Jonny stopped by the launch party last weekend for The Cancer Support Community: the merging of Gilda’s Club and The Wellness Community. This merge of two well known not-for-profits will create one of the largest resources for cancer fighters in the country!
“Backed by evidence that the best cancer care includes emotional and social support, the Cancer Support Community offers these services to all people affected by cancer. Likely the largest professionally-led network of cancer support worldwide, the organization delivers a comprehensive menu of personalized and essential services. Because no cancer care plan is complete without emotional and social support, the Cancer Support Community has a vibrant network of community-based centers and online services run by trained and licensed professionals.
