Georgetown Parks and Recreation hosting breast cancer recovery course
The City of Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department is hosting The Pink Plan, a recovery course for survivors of breast cancer, on Saturday mornings in February.
The program will provide breast cancer survivors who have undergone breast surgery with comprehensive tools for managing post-mastectomy syndrome.
The four-part course provides participants with information, techniques, and tools for self-management to reduce adverse effects such as limited range of motion, loss of functionality, muscle atrophy and muscle weakness. The course will be taught by certified personal trainer Shanna Cahill, a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and breast cancer survivor.
The Pink Plan will be held Saturday mornings from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at the Georgetown Recreation Center, 1003 N. Austin Ave. Course fees are $45 for Georgetown residents and $55 for nonresidents.
