Keeping It in Perspective
A Healthy Approach to Life’s Uncertainty

New Britain [March 08 2006] - New Britain General Hospital will host a free talk April 4 for those coping with disease and end-of-life issues. Light refreshments will be available at 6:30 p.m. The program starts at 6:45 p.m. and will run about an hour and a half.

The presenter is Fr. Nick Mezacapa, a cancer survivor and Episcopal priest for the past 16 years at Calvary Episcopal Church, in Rochester, Minnesota.

The presentation will focus on the relative shortness and uncertainty of human life, and our responsibility to live our lives with that in mind. It will be a spiritual, forceful, informative, moving, and humorous lesson in creating a positive destiny for oneself in the face of a cancer diagnosis.

Ministering to many from Minnesota’s Mayo Clinic, located directly across the street from his church, gives “Father Nick” a unique perspective. His presentations draw passion and authenticity from his experiences as a teacher, coach, priest, husband, and father. His experiences as a prostate cancer survivor, radio personality, and actor give him a dynamic and compelling style that has earned him national acclaim.

The program is being co-sponsored by the Hospital’s George Bray Cancer Center and the Wolfson Palliative Care Center and will he held in Lecture Rooms 1 and 2. Free parking will be available in the Quigley Garage. Registration is required due to limited seating; please call 860-224-5463.
