- Sunday, July 17th, 3:30-5:00pm

Once the treatments and surgeries are over, everyone in your life wants you to "get back to normal." You would like that too - but, you're not even sure what "normal" means anymore! Join life coach and breast cancer survivor Jenn McRobbie in discussing some of the survivorship issues that arise for YACs. This will be a highly interactive discussion on topics such as: what normal means, how to deal with family and friends, changing jobs, and wanting to give back to the community.

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
