Handling Cancer-Related Fatigue

Midwest Cancer Alliance will host a cancer-related fatigue event on Wednesday, September 21 at 3 p.m. in Goodland, Pittsburg, Salina and Oberlin, Kansas.

Cancer-related fatigue, different from fatigue in healthy people, is the most common side effect of cancer treatment. How cancer treatments cause fatigue is not clear, but many different factors including treatment from chemotherapy or radiation, or side effects from treatments such as anemia, poor nutrition, or depression contribute to this fatigue. This discussion will address means to relieve and improve quality of life.

For more information and to sign up, call 913-588-4719.
