Yoga for Cancer

Mid Coast Hospital and Maine Pines Racquet & Fitness are again partnering to offer a yoga program designed to limit stress, reduce fatigue, and promote healing for cancer patients. “Yoga for Cancer” takes place weekly, beginning September 21 . It is free and open to cancer patients before, after, or during treatment.

Research suggests that yoga can improve the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment, while helping patients cope. Benefits include a decrease in fatigue, pain, and anxiety as well as an increase in appetite, better quality sleep, and improved bone density. The Yoga for Cancer program will help cancer patients develop a better sense of well being, stimulate the immune system, and increase flexibility and strength.

Register at Maine Pines, 120 Harpswell Road in Brunswick, or by calling (207) 729-8433.

Bill Green is a lifelong Mainer. Born in Bangor (1953) he was educated in Bangor schools (Bangor High 1971) and the University of Maine (1976). As a freshman at UMaine, he worked as a cameraman at WLBZ 2 on Eddie Driscoll’s “My Backyard” and “Dialing for Dollars” shows.

Bill recalls, “The first night I worked, March 17, 1972, I was asked to stay late and run camera for the news. As they played the opening music, and the camera light came on, I remember thinking, I’m going to do this until I’m 65.”

Bill debuted as a sportscaster on WLBZ 2 in 1975. He moved to Portland in 1981 where he anchored weekend sports statewide on WCSH 6 and WLBZ 2. During this period, Bill began to flourish as a feature reporter and developed an expertise in recreation and the outdoors.

In 1993, Bill came off the anchor desk to produce feature stories and documentaries, including 10 documentaries on Maine and the environment under the banner “Color Me Green,” in addition to his weekly features, “Green Outdoors” and “My Hometown.”

In 2000, Bill Green launched an original series, “Bill Green’s Maine.” This program airs Saturdays at 7:00pm and has become the most-watched show in its time period. Among his many interesting life experiences which include climbing Katahdin three times, parachuting and SCUBA diving, Bill was a bone marrow donor to a young girl who lives Michigan. He is also a Registered MaineGuide. Bill and his wife Pam reside in Cumberland. They have two children, Sam and Emily.
