7 Years Or More Post-Diagnosis: An Open Discussion
September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Open to people nationwide who were diagnosed with breast, ovarian or gynecological cancer 7 or more years ago. Pre-registration is required. To register, call Support Connection, 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290 no later than 5pm (NY time) the day before.
Even years after receiving their cancer diagnosis, many people find themselves facing issues, concerns and questions that can be challenging. The issues often are very different from the ones encountered early in the cancer journey.
In this open discussion, connect with others who are also 7+ years post-diagnosis and are coping with these unique challenges. Topics to include: Changes to your treatment and care since diagnosis; Long term side effects; Impact of stress and anxiety on self-care; Questions about what doctors you should still be seeing and why; Adapting to the use of telehealth.
This is not an educational program; there will be no professionals speaking about the medical or psychosocial aspects of cancer. It is a discussion facilitated by a Support Connection Peer Counselor, providing a chance to help one another by sharing information, resources, and coping strategies.
