On: October 18, 2016 Filed Under: Member News
Holy Spirit–A Geisinger Affiliate will host “Strength through Spirituality and Prayer” as part of the ongoing Cancer Wellness program series. The session will take place Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Holy Spirit Hospital Auditorium, 503 N. 21st St., Camp Hill.
“Studies have found that spirituality, religion and prayer are important factors in the quality of life for some people diagnosed with cancer,” says Sister Mary Joseph Albright, Holy Spirit’s mission integration director and scheduled speaker for the November program. “Research has not shown that spirituality and prayer can cure cancer or any other disease, but these practices can complement conventional medical care.”
Holy Spirit’s Cancer Wellness programs focus on steps individuals can take to combat cancer, such as following an anti-cancer diet, managing stress, maintaining a healthy weight and improving fitness. Sessions are held quarterly on the last Tuesday of the month.
