Reach to Recovery gives retraining to volunteers Almost 40 Reach to Recovery volunteers from throughout the state met recently for a re-training program. These volunteers are breast cancer survivors who pro- vide one-on-one non-medical sup- port to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, who have had breast surgery and other cancer treatments, or who have discovered a suspicious lump through mammography or physi- cal examination. Juli Hammond, Reach to Recovery coordinator for Delaware, stated that the retrain- ing was necessary to update Reach volunteers about new or revised materials and procedures, which resulted from a two-year national re-evaluation and revi =- sion of the program. Among other topics, the re- training included information on active listening, breast reconstruc- tion, hand and arm care after surgery, exercises for the patient, and other resources available for the breast cancer patient. The pro- gram in Delaware will be expand- ing to include support for the patient's partner and support for the patient who has had a recur- rence of her cancer. Reach volun- teers also assist male breast cancer patients. For more information call the American Cancer Society Sussex office at 856-3533.
