Why Comprehensive Cancer Care is Important

Frankly Speaking About Cancer

Dr. Richard Zakheim


As a founder of the Cancer Support Community Greater Miami, Dr. Zakheim was a driving force in creating our organization since its inception in 1999. With his wife by his side, CSCGM Founder. Pam Zakheim, he served on leadership committees and was an active member of our Board of Directors. His unwavering dedication as a volunteer helped to create a haven for thousands of cancer patients and their loved ones. In lieu of flowers, donations expressions of sympathy may be made on in his honor to the Cancer Support Community – an important cause so very close to his heart.

Our distinguished speaker has dedicated over 14 years to integrating massage therapy into the treatment of cancer. She will highlight the therapeutic uses of massage in the treatment of pain and stiffness, and in improving mobility, and rehabilitating injured muscles. Review of the scientific literature indicates massage helps improve quality of life. Benefits include improved relaxation, sleep, and immune function as well as relieving anxiety, pain and nausea. Massage can be a powerful and healthy way to care for and appreciate our bodies. Patients/Survivors and loved ones are welcome! Simultaneous language interpreting to Spanish with advanced request.
