With Jenn McRobbie

Sunday,  November 5  3:30 – 5 p.m. 

Join life coach and breast cancer survivor Jenn McRobbie in an interactive workshop on how to use a vision board (a graphic depiction of your hopes and dreams) to flip the script on all the negative self talk that often comes along with being diagnosed with cancer. Unfamiliar emotions coupled with the physical and psychological demands of treatment can leave YACs feeling like they don’t know who they are or where they belong. Join us in learning to change how you think so you can open the door to more joy and satisfaction in your life.

About Jenn McRobbie:

Jenn McRobbie is a young breast cancer survivor, life coach and author.  Following her diagnosis and treatment, Jenn published her first book, Why is She Acting So Weird? A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When a Friend is in Crisis.  Why is She Acting So Weird? was borne from her experiences interacting with friends after diagnosis and during treatment. Jenn believes that friends are critical to successfully navigating a crisis, so she developed the resource she wished existed for her friends when she was diagnosed.  It is her treatise on empowering friends to rise and lift each other during crisis. Jenn is now settling into a new role as an advocate for breast cancer survivors, their friends, and family.
