September 29 (Thursday): Cancer, the gift that keeps on giving
It can often feel like just when you’re getting your life back on track after cancer, that’s when a tsunami of issues hit all at once. It’s like Murphy’s Law but with a cancer twist. Now that many people are living longer after cancer treatment, some late effects can happen months or years later. So, let’s talk about how cancer is the gift that keeps on giving and ways to manage those physical and emotional feelings.
October 18: The Latest Genetic Testing Guidelines for Triple-Negative Breast Cancer: What You Need to Know
Genetic testing can play a significant role in the type of treatment used for your cancer. There are new genetic testing guidelines specifically for those diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Now more targeted therapies are being developed to treat those with TNBC more intentionally. Our speaker Christina Spears, breast cancer genetic counselor at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, will shed light on the genetic testing process as it relates to the TNBC community.
November 15: TNBC “Ask Me Anything” Long-Term Survivorship Panel - Tips from Survivors to Patients
There is no “right” way to deal with any cancer diagnosis. Everyone’s journey is unique, but sometimes advice from those who also went through it can help. Join us to hear our three panelists share their stories of going through triple-negative breast cancer and hear about their long-term survival tips. This will be a safe space to ask any questions regarding their experiences from SHARE’s Vice President of Patient Support and Education, Christine Benjamin, TNBC Let’s Talk About It facilitator, Nancy Touhill, and Cynthia Washington, who is a thriving TNBC survivor.
*Please remember our panelists will be unable to give specific medical advice, so please keep your questions general in nature.
