Breast Cancer Survivorship: A Roadmap

On Thursday October 10, at 6:30 pm, OncoLink will be broadcasting live from Living Beyond Breast Cancer's October community meeting. Those who cannot attend in person will be able to listen to the presentation and view the slides from this page. You will need to dial in to a conference call line to hear the speaker. That number will be posted the day of the presentation. There is no video of the presentation.

During this free community meeting, speakers Christina Bach, MBE, MSW, and Carolyn Vachani, RN, MSN, AOCN, will:

  • Provide information, tips and resources on transitioning from treatment to survivorship and on making the most of life after a diagnosis of breast cancer.
  • Explain how to manage long-term side effects, navigate practical matters and control difficult emotions.
  • Provide insights into advocating for your health care by using tools like a survivorship care plan and by communicating your health history to new providers.
