Free seminars done at the Hope Club of American Cancer Society

I do these seminars on those Thursdays at the Hope club (1) when at least one person signs up in advance. It seems people are not aware of these seminars or do not believe its usefulness, as no one registered for several months in a row or some one registered but did not turn up. If nothing else, this technique can be a big help in relieving the sleep problems which are common for many cancer survivors.
