Official Covid-19 Response from the President of Arizona Oncology Foundation

Covid-19 Letter Header

March 16, 2020

Dear practitioners, therapists, volunteers and supporters of the Arizona Oncology Foundation,

As an organization whose focus is entirely on caring for those in the Southern Arizona cancer community, we find ourselves on the front lines of the global outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The virus has officially been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization and a public health emergency by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. Together, we will do
everything in our power to protect the health of our communities.

At this time our duty is to help stop the spread of the virus to avoid community contagion, particularly among those who could be most vulnerable.

We have made the decision to consolidate our resources, volunteers and personnel, and to operate only from our Craycroft Resource Center, located at 2625 N. Craycroft Rd. Ste. 215, until Tuesday, March 31st. Ample signage at our Rudasil Resource Center informs patients, clients and other visitors of this change.

We will have a staff member at the Craycroft Resource Center Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm to provide assistance to our patients.

Volunteer support will be restricted throughout this time period. We will reassess the situation at the end of March and will provide further updates at that time. Until then, our Program Manager, Ron Bridgemon and available volunteers, will be happy to help reschedule/cancel any appointments or services.

These changes have been implemented to prioritize the absolute safety of our staff, volunteers, practitioners and the community we serve.

Thank you for your support and understanding at this unprecedented time.

Respectfully,


Lee Klein
President
Board of Directors
Arizona Oncology Foundation

Meditation & Stress Management

Two Classes in Stress & Anxiety Reduction
Using Mindfulness & Simple Breathing Techniques
 
How To Meditate 
Studies show meditation calms the mind, helps reduce chronic pain, improves sleep, and enhances the quality of life.  This secular 4-week class, held monthly for years at the AZ Oncology Foundation, addresses myths and misunderstandings about meditation, providing a relaxed and comfortable introduction to this important practice.
Class meets Tuesdays 11:00 am ~ 12:00 noon 
$10 per class or $40 for four Classes. 
 
For those who have completed How To Meditate, and for anyone who already knows how to meditate, we hold an Open Meditation Session every Tuesday from noon-1pm, also in the "Living Room." Sitting together is a wonderful way to deepen our practice. We discuss practice-related issues, sit for about a half hour, and then listen to an audio dharma talk from well-known teachers like Jack Kornfield, Thich Nhat Hanh, Tara Brach, etc.
This is a free class, run on a donation basis.

Breathe Well ~ Feel Calmer 
If you sometimes feel held hostage by pain, worry, stress and anxiety…if you tighten up, hold your breath, then breathe shallowly, sometimes hyperventilating and feeling out of control, then you’re not alone, and there is a simple solution: Learn to relax deeply, breathe well, and start feeling better fast! 

Benefits 
• Quickly relieve short-term symptoms of stress and anxiety. 
• Resist the formation of long-term chronic stress. 
• Release endorphins to reduce pain (acute and chronic) and promote sound sleep. 
• Stay in the moment: be more present, more mindful, more aware, more you. 

Class meets on Tuesdays by appointment.
Cost: $40 (scholarships and sliding scale available).
