How This Workshop Can Help You

Each 6-week workshop series will meet once a week. Review the workshop overview to see what topics are discussed each week.

“This workshop was just what I needed. After a new cancer diagnosis after just finishing treatments for my previous one, I was devastated to learn of yet another cancer diagnosis requiring more treatment with years of follow-up and wasn't sure how I was going to proceed. This workshop presented to me at just the right time and taught me the tools I need to move forward and live with a chronic condition.”
