DAVENPORT, IOWA (May 26, 2021) — Gilda’s Club is hosting a FREE virtual workshop for anyone impacted by cancer on Wednesdays and Fridays, June 9–July 2, 2021, 8:30–9AM via Zoom.

Join Deena Jo Christy for a 4-week, twice per week, lymphedema education and exercise class held via Zoom.

Lymphedema is swelling in the arms and legs. According to Mayo Clinic, lymphedema “is most commonly caused by the removal of or damage to your lymph nodes as a part of cancer treatment.”

The series will focus on lymphedema identification, prevention, and management, and each class will incorporate some exercise to help those with lymphedema manage their symptoms. Christy will help people with lymphedema build their knowledge, exercise, and communication through engaging and energizing. A doctor's release is required for participation in the series.

This series will be held via Zoom.

Anyone impacted by cancer is invited to attend. Registration is required at http://www.gildasclubqc.org/calendar. For questions, please call Gilda’s Club at 563-326-7504 or e-mail gc@gildasclubqc.org.
