Taking Your Body Back: Retreats and AdventuresTaking Your Body Back: Retreats and Adventures

After a breast cancer diagnosis, sometimes you just need a break from doctors’ appointments and treatments, and even from your daily routine. This session will help you explore the various retreats and adventures that are available to young women diagnosed with breast cancer, so you can find new strength in your body.
The LGBT Cancer ExperienceThe LGBT Cancer Experience

Survivors who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender may face unique challenges and concerns following a breast cancer diagnosis. These may include different healthcare experiences, communication with their care team and considerations for relationships. Come to this session to talk with other survivors who can relate, and get ideas for finding empowerment after a diagnosis.
Yoga and Meditation Yoga and Meditation

Yoga incorporates exercise and meditation with the intention of bringing together the mind, body and spirit. This is especially important after the upheaval of a breast cancer diagnosis. Research has shown that yoga may be able to help improve physical functioning, reduce fatigue, reduce stress, improve sleep and improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients. You will receive helpful tools you can use to integrate these practices into your daily life.
Co-Survivors: The Various Phases of Co-SurvivorshipCo-Survivors: The Various Phases of Co-Survivorship

Being a co-survivor means different things at different phases of the breast cancer experience. When your loved one is newly diagnosed or in ongoing treatment, you may be the primary caretaker and shoulder to lean on. If their treatment is complete, however, your role may be more about adjusting to life after breast cancer and examining your relationship. Learn about what to expect and how to care for your loved one and yourself during every phase.
