DULUTH, Minn. -

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis and going through cancer treatments can take a toll on a body and make a life-long impact.

St. Luke's Hospital is aiming to help cancer survivors cope with the effects of the strong treatments.

The hospital is hosting a free lecture called “Coping with Late Effects of Radiation and Chemotherapy Treatments."

Dr. Nils Arvold, St. Luke's Radiation Oncologist, will be one of the speakers.

Dr. Arvold visited FOX 21 this morning and said many people don't think about what can happen to your body the years after these treatments.

The doctors will give advice on managing these effects.

The educational event is taking place Tuesday, September 20 at the Marshall School Auditorium.

The dinner starts at 4:30 p.m. and the lecture begins at 5:30 p.m.
