Surviving Survivorship Conference

Whether you have just been diagnosed with cancer, are currently undergoing treatment, or are in remission…. YOU are a cancer survivor!  This survivorship experience is unique for each cancer survivor and their caregivers.  Some are challenged by changes in appearance or physical abilities, by changes in priorities, or by changes in daily routines.  Others are challenged by increased levels of anxiety and worry, finding new interests,  or by trying to find their new “normal”.

To help address survivorship challenges,  the “Surviving Survivorship: Living with Cancer” free educational event is being offered to cancer survivors and their caregivers.  Workshops are led by experts and are designed to address a variety of needs and interests.

WHEN:   Saturday, October 11, 2014
12 noon - 4 pm

Workshops include:
Tools for Taming Worry and Anxiety (led by Lacy Fetting, LCSW-C)
The Challenge of Caregiving: A Conversation for Caregivers (led by Terry Langbaum, MAS)
