The first grants from the Women’s Breast Health Fund of the Community Foundation are already showing results, in this case a special Young Breast Cancer Survivors workshop available at no cost to breast cancer survivors and their families. If you or a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer before menopause, consider participating in this free, four-hour workshop on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013, at the UAB School of Nursing.
Space is limited, so click here to register now or call 975-8656. Activities for children will be provided but registration is necessary for them as well. Registration deadline is Feb. 10.
We are glad to promote this opportunity for education and support, which includes sessions for survivors and spouses as well as health professionals and individuals caring for young women affected by breast cancer. The Women’s Breast Health Fund recognizes that needs continue from diagnosis through follow-up care throughout the life of the survivor. This workshop is one effort to educate and encourage, always focusing on ways to make life better for women and their loved ones who are facing this disease.
