Thank you for joining us at our eleventh-annual free event for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, friends, family and health care professionals. The conference provided general education on a variety of the late- and long-term effects faced by cancer survivors after treatment is completed and to provide information on wellness after cancer.

The event was attended by over 200 individuals affected by cancer, speakers and exhibitors.  The post-event evaluations reflected overwhelmingly positive impressions; requests and comments will be considered in planning future events. 

Survivor panelists share their personal stories and important tips for moving beyond cancer to wellness. Many took some time to capture the moment with each other in our first time ever event photo booth!
