CHICO, Calif. - A free resiliency training for patients who have cancer and other serious illnesses will be hosted by the Enloe Regional Cancer Center, Enloe Medical Center said in a news release.
Enloe Patient Empowerment Program, an ongoing initiative to support the mental and emotional well-being throughout their cancer journey, has Shift Your Perception sessions taught by Emilian Cornejo.
Cornejo, an Enloe cancer patient with Stage IV sarcoma, learned to teach community resiliency after the Camp Fire at the Trauma Research Institute.
The skills he taught to five fire survivors were able to help him through his own cancer journey and he wanted to share those skills with others who are fighting cancer.
“In my experience as a patient, I needed someone who could help me deal with everything going on around me,” Cornejo said in the news release. “Now, I’m committed to helping other patients to walk this path.’
There will be a free two-part event happening on Zoom with the first session on Tuesday from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The second session will be on Thursday at the same time.
Enloe Medical Center said participants do not have to be patients and recommend patients participating in both sessions.
Those who would like to reserve their spot and get a link to the session are asked to reach out to Rebecca Senoglu at (530) 332-3856 or at Rebecca.Senoglu@Enloe.org.
