NEW HARTFORD — The After Breast Cancer Support Group will meet at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 10 in the Community Room at the Center for Rehabilitation and Continuing Care Services on the St. Luke’s Campus, 1650 Champlin Ave.

Physical Therapist Margaret Celebi will return with her physical therapy assistant Rachel to continue the conversations about evaluation, diagnosis and management of post-treatment lymphedema in women who have received treatment for breast cancer.

She will discuss steps women can take to reduce their risk for lymphedema and signs and symptoms of lymphedema.

If time allows, Dr. Celebi and Rachel will perform measurements to assess for lymphedema for those who are interested.

Support Group meetings are free and were created by women who have survived breast cancer.

The group is dedicated to providing education, information and emotional support to women and men who are facing biopsy, surgery or recovery from breast cancer.
