Wings Cancer Foundation will host its 13th Annual Golf Scramble at the Windyke Country Club on Monday, May 18, 2015 to benefit the Wings Wellness Programs, which include nutrition and exercise. These programs are important to the recovery and continued good health of cancer patients/survivors and are provided free of charge.
The 2014 Wings Golf Scramble raised $40,000 and enabled Wings to donate 2,375 nutrition appointments to cancer patients. Nutritional services include personalized consults with Wings Cancer Foundation’s Certified
Oncology Nutritionist, Anita Vincent. Food choices can influence how well a patient tolerates their treatment, can help them heal and recover more quickly afterwards, and can optimize their future health. Patients find out how to eat to manage side effects and weight management (loss or gain) and optimize their immune system. They can also get help deciding which supplements they need or don’t need. Making smart food choices can be confusing in the best of times. Wings can help sort through the facts and fiction, getting patients back on track and feeling stronger.
Yoga classes and exercise classes specifically designed for cancer patients can be a source of additional strength, helping to lessen fatigue and give confidence during treatment. Even the smallest movements or simply breathing deeply is beneficial.
