“Let’s Talk” Schedule:

  • Tuesday, February 21 – Join us for a discussion focusing on Cancer Treatment. According to the National Cancer Institute, “There are many types of cancer treatment. The types of treatment that you have will depend on the type of cancer you have and how advanced it is. Some people with cancer will have only one treatment. But most people have a combination of treatments. When you need treatment for cancer, you have a lot to learn and think about. It is normal to feel overwhelmed and confused.” This presentation will provide viewers with information about different treatment options and what community resources are available in Wayne County. This is a great opportunity to discuss your questions or concerns about this issue.
  • Tuesday, March 7 – Join us for a discussion focusing on Cancer Survivorship. This presentation will focus on the “new normal” of adjusting to the physical and emotional changes after cancer treatment. You aren’t alone. According to the National Cancer Institute, “There are millions of adults and children in the United States who are cancer survivors.” We will discuss systems of support available in the community, how to get involved to support cancer survivors, and the tips for dealing with cancer as a chronic disease.  This is a great opportunity to discuss your questions or concerns about this issue.
