can be made available to other cancer survivors.

Each workshop is 6 weeks with new lessons each week. You will be asked to log on at your
convenience 2-3 times each week for a total of 1-2 hours, to read the lessons, complete
assignments, and share your ideas and experiences with your classmates. There are no
requirements that participants log in at the same time.

With the moderators and other workshop participants, you will discuss:

- Healthy eating

- Managing fatigue

- Managing stress
