Let's Talk About It: Black Women with Breast Cancer (Mind-Body Approaches to Manage Pain in Black Community)

Register Here

We acknowledge that significant racial disparities persist in the US healthcare system. Myths such as "Black people's nerve endings are less sensitive than white people's" or "Black people's skin is thicker than white people's" need to be consistently debunked. In this session, we will discuss approaches to addressing your doctor's implicit bias, how pain is influenced by our emotions that may impact physical changes, sharing holistic pain management techniques in addition to Western medications, and the benefits of movement before and after surgery or in cases of chronic pain post-cancer treatment.

If you're a Black woman breast cancer survivor, join us on Thursday, September 19th with Lisa P. Nelson, LMSW, OSW-C, and Megan-Claire Chase, invasive lobular (ILC) survivor and SHARE's Breast Cancer Program Director. You'll get the opportunity to share your stories and experiences with fellow survivors and learn new ways to cope with the challenges of breast cancer.

This space is tailor-made for Black women breast cancer survivors who want to connect with others and gain insights from their journeys towards healing. Don't miss out on this chance to join a supportive community of survivors.
