Cancer Services Network to broadcast workshop

Cancer Services Network (CSN) plans to broadcast CancerCare’s Connect® Workshop Part III of Cancer Survivorship: Living With, Though, and Beyond Cancer. This workshop entitled Changing Roles and Responsibilities for Caregivers is scheduled on Tuesday, June 19, 2012, from noon to 1:30 p.m. This session is for cancer survivors, their families and friends. Information will be shared to help them cope with concerns that arise after treatment. The information is primarily for cancer survivors who have recently completed their treatment, but some may find the information helpful even if they were treated a long time ago. CancerCare, in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute: Office of Cancer Survivorship and Office of Communications and Education, LIVESTRONG, American Cancer Society, Intercultural Cancer Council, Living Beyond Breast Cancer and National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship sponsor the workshops. Dr. Anita Broxson, ON, OCN, will facilitate questions and answers after the session. A Brown Bag Lunch will be held in the Hinds Square Classroom located at 100 Chestnut, Suite 112, Abilene, Texas. Those attending are asked to bring a lunch (drinks and dessert will be provided). Leading experts in oncology will provide the most up-to-date information in audio format. There is no cost to attend, but reservations are requested. Please call the CSN office at (325) 672-0040 or send an email to .
