The Villages - October 2021 - 18

THERE'S A
CONNECTION
THAT HAPPENS
BETWEEN
PEOPLE WHO
ARE HAVING
A SHARED
EXPERIENCE
- THAT'S SO
IMPORTANT.
- Amy Roberts,
LCSW
In addition, Roberts also offers mindful meditation
classes to those who've been affected by cancer and their
loved ones.
" It's one of the cancer programs we provide at Robert
Boissoneault, " she said. " You learn new concepts and
practice them; each class builds on the next. "
The class is free and available to people living in the
area. Roberts calls it a success.
" By the end of it, people say they want to keep
meeting, which is really rewarding. I also do a Zoom
meditation session every Friday. Some people have been
coming for years. "
According to the National Institutes of Health,
evidence shows meditation can help lessen anxiety,
depression, and pain.
" It helps you get a sense of calm and control when
you feel overwhelmed, " Roberts said. " We focus on being
more present and connected with what's happening
in our bodies, minds, thoughts and emotions. As you
become more and more aware of those thoughts and
reactions, you're able to then turn toward them with
kindness and reset. You get a little more say in what's
going on. "
Another powerful coping mechanism Roberts
recommends to her patients - friendships with
likeminded people.
" There's
a
connection that
happens
between
people who are having a shared experience - that's so
important, " she said. " I'm a licensed counselor; I can
provide all the counseling in the world for patients going
through cancer, but there's something unique about
being with someone who has the same story, someone
who's going through the same process. "

Roberts says she fields a lot of calls from those who
need resources, thanks to The Villages Cancer Support
Group's website.
" (They call about) wigs or prosthetics, or they need
help with transportation and insurance. There are just
so many ripple effects of what Rhetta and the group
have created. "
More than 30 years after its founding, The Villages
Cancer Support Group continues their mission to
motivate and educate members.
" Some have been in remission for 20 years, and they
just keep coming back to encourage others, " Morales
said. " That's what we're all about. "
