Living With Ovarian Cancer – an Open Discussion
September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Open to women nationwide, who are living with a diagnosis of ovarian or gynecological cancer. Pre-registration is required. To register, call Support Connection, 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290. Must register no later than 5 pm (NY time) on Monday September 19th.
After an Ovarian Cancer diagnosis there are many concerns and challenges that arise. Join us for an open discussion where you can connect with others diagnosed with ovarian and gynecological cancer and discuss issues such as:
Pelvic Health / Sexuality
Staying educated on what’s new for Ovarian Cancer
Mental & emotional health
Living with the fear of recurrence
All topics of interest are welcome.
This open discussion group provides a safe space to talk with other women experiencing similar concerns and questions. This is not an educational program; there will not be any professionals speaking about the medical or psychosocial aspects of cancer. Our Open Discussions present 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.
This discussion will be facilitated by a Support Connection Peer Counselor whose experience includes an ovarian cancer diagnosis.
