Esprit de Corps
I Have a bond with the people in this group
by Denise
When my husband’s doctor confirmed the growth in his lymph
node was cancer, it was almost impossible to process. We
talked, I cried, we visited doctors, put the treatment plan in
place, started on this journey, and I hit a wall. No matter how
much support I had from family and friends, they just did not
know how to talk to me about what I was experiencing as the
caregiver for a cancer patient.
A dear friend suggested I contact the Cancer Support
Community and for that, I will be forever grateful. Attending
the caregiver support group has given me a warm, caring, safe
place to talk about the stress I was under and an opportunity
to voice fears and heartache without any judgment or reprisal.
In this group I met people who were on the same journey as
I, but on different paths – some shorter, some steeper, some
rockier – but all of us helping each other to make the journey.
As others shared their
experiences, I was able to
draw strength from them,
step outside of myself for a
while, and to truly realize I was
not alone in my feelings or struggles.
My husband finished his treatments several months ago and is
thankfully in remission. But I have not stopped attending the
support group meetings. I have a bond with the people in this
group that is hard to explain but that is strong and sustaining.
The faces have changed – loved ones die and a member
moves on to a group dealing with grief, and new people join as
loved ones are diagnosed with cancer. But there is always the
consistency of care, support, and love that I believe would be
impossible to replicate in any other place.
The People in This Room Get It
by Michael
There is a moment for all of us in the cancer patient support
group when we think or say: “The people in this room get it.”
For those of us who have undergone cancer treatment of any
kind, the process can be physically, emotionally and sometimes
psychologically taxing. Many of us continue to work while
fatigued from chemotherapy or radiation. Friends and family
see us out and about, not realizing that it takes every ounce of
strength we have to buy groceries or be part of a celebration.
Because we look good – or look like we feel good anyway – they
think we’re doing fine; they have no idea we can barely focus
on conversation, have difficulty keeping our nausea in check or
that certain body parts are tender to the touch.
Out in the world, people don’t get what it’s like. Our caregivers,
as loving as they are, have no idea exactly what we’re going
through. They want to help, and do to the best of their abilities.
But they don’t know, and they can’t take the side effects away.
Support group members understand. When we’re going
through treatment together, we can commiserate. More than
that, we can truly
support each other,
share remedies for
side effects and, as
odd as it sounds,
break out in
raucous laughter
over leaking
colostomy
bags and other
issues.
Being able to share my
experience with others in active treatment has been like
being in battle. We are not just support group members, we’re
comrades in arms. Together we’ve fought an enemy we can’t
see with weapons that take their own toll. That comradeship
gave me strength, courage and wisdom I would not have had
without the group. I’m so glad I found the Cancer Support
Community of East Tennessee and my Monday night group.

“Cancer affects all of us, whether you’re a daughter, mother, sister, friend,
coworker, doctor or patient.”
Dealing with cancer is challenging for everyone. In families, roles and responsibilities
shift. In addition to holding down a full time job, all of the household responsibilities
fall to the caregiver. The natural inclination of parents is to want to protect their children
who in reality can sense something is wrong. Friends and neighbors are often afraid to reach out because
they are not sure what to say or do.
These are just a few of the reasons that Cancer Support Community provides programs and services for
everyone impacted by this disease.
If you are a spouse or caregiver, reduce stress though our many program offerings or gain tips from others
who are in similar circumstances.
If you have children, find out how to give age appropriate information that they can understand but that
won't overwhelm them.
If you are a friend or coworker, learn ways to talk with and be helpful to the person living with cancer.
Accessing our professional staff and resources is easy. Our staff will provide tips on managing the impact
of cancer, suggestions for programs and services, or access to resources, all at no charge.
We’re here, we’re helpful and we’re just a phone call away. Call today (865) 546-4661

On Wednesday, August 20 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm Dr.
Wahid Hanna will present an educational program on
New Discoveries in Cancer. This program was developed
by Cancer Support Community in partnership with
the Research Advocacy Network to provide the latest
information on cancer treatment, side-effect management
and psychosocial aspects of the
illness to people affected by cancer and their loved
ones. In the workshop and companion booklet,
patients learn about new treatments in development,
current treatments, symptom/side-effect management
strategies, the social and emotional challenges of
the diagnosis and survivorship issues. This program
describes innovations being used in cancer treatment
today as well as those in development.

Experience this ancient Chinese art form some call
“meditation in motion.” By breathing deeply, moving
slowly and with awareness Tai Chi can help us tap into our

helps improve balance, posture, strength and flexibility.

Celebrating Courage & Survivorship in 2014
This year’s ARTitude event was hosted in Cancer Support Community’s home at Cherokee Mills. With almost 300 guests in
attendance, a silent auction full of creative works, and an artistically diverse marketplace, the evening was one of spirited and lively
enjoyment. Guests were welcomed through the doors of CSC towards a lovely party in the atrium space, where they enjoyed a
number of delicious treats, lively bidding and mingling with friends. CSC especially thanks 2014 ARTitude Committee Members:
Rebecca Clark, Karen McKinney, Dianna Osickey, Leslie Parent, and Alisa Twarzynski for making this year’s event one to remember.
Kudos to our hardworking event volunteers: Dana Barnes, Allison Bradley, Charlie Brown, Mylissa Buttram, Andrea Duncan,
Debra Gage, Darlene Geter, Donna Hardy, Cathy & Steve Hurrell, Greyson Bullock, Matthew Bullock, Julia Bullock, Tanner Hamil,
John Stone, Stacy Williams, Eric Wright, and Erin Wright.
