Free Program (Virtual Discussion) for Long-Term Survivors of Breast, Ovarian, or Gynecological Cancerraft

September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE
Support Connection, Inc. announces a free program: 7 Years Or More Post-Diagnosis: An Open Discussion will be held via ZOOM video conference on Tuesday, September 27, from 7 – 8 pm (NY time).
 
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 5 pm (NY time) on Monday, September 26.
 
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 will include: Have treatment recommendations and follow-up care changed since your diagnosis? – Have short term side effects become long-term? – Are stress and anxiety thwarting your self-care? – Do you find yourself wondering what doctors you should still be seeing and why? – Do you find telehealth challenging? All topics of interest are welcome.
 
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. It presents a valuable opportunity to connect with others with similar concerns who understand what you’re going through, and a chance to help one another by sharing information, resources, and coping strategies.
