Survive Strong

Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital's Rehabilitative Services have partnered with Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center to offer a cancer-related fatigue program, Survive Strong.

Through multiple research studies, evidence shows that low to moderate exercise in oncology patients can reduce and even prevent cancer-related fatigue, reduce side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, improve quality of life and possibly even improve survival rates.

This program is designed for individuals diagnosed with any stage of cancer who are experiencing fatigue or weakness, or are unsure how to initiate exercise. It is appropriate for anyone currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy, or who has completed cancer treatment within the past year.

A physician's referral is required and scholarships are available for program participants.
 

The Survive Strong program at Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center runs for eight weeks and consists of two weekly exercise sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Free Colorectal Screening Kits

Beginning March 1 to launch Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital and Northwestern Grayslake are providing free colorectal screening kits for community members.

Patients can pick up screening kits at the registration desk inside Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital’s Main Entrance or at the Northwestern Grayslake Cancer Center.

Nurses will be available daily between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to answer questions about the kits and general colorectal screening guidelines. Please call 847.535.6186 to speak with a nurse. Screening kits will be available through the end of the year.

Among cancers that affect women and men, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control. In the United States in 2010, 132,000 people were diagnosed with colorectal cancer and more than 50,000 died from it. More than 90 percent of colorectal cancer cases occur in people 50 years or older.

For those 50 years or older, taking a screening test for colorectal cancer could save their lives because the test screens for markers that indicate precancerous polyps that can be removed they turn into cancer. Screening can also detect the cancer early when treatment often leads to a cure.

For more information about colorectal cancer or for questions about the screening kits, please call Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital at 847.535.6186 or Northwestern Grayslake at 847.535.7400.
