Cancer Rehabilitation

I really feel better and am able to help other patients

“ hanks to the therapists, my balance is better and I've learned how to hold a knife to cut seasonings and cook again in the Touro cooking class. Now I’m back to cooking my legendary gumbo at home for my family. ”

Treatment for breast cancer left me with neuropathy in my hands and feet. This really limited what I was able to do. My hands were locked into fists, so I could not cook or even sign my name. I also had balance problems and was falling at home.

The Cancer Rehabilitation Program at Touro really helped me. When I first started the program, I was feeling distraught and depressed. Now I’m doing well after physical and occupational therapy. I really feel better and am able to help other patients who are struggling.

Thanks to the therapists, my balance is better and I've learned how to hold a knife to cut seasonings and cook again in the Touro cooking class. Now I’m back to cooking my legendary gumbo at home for my family.
