Discussion Series: Body Image
September 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Cancer can cause many changes to our body physically and the experience can also impact your relationship with your body. Receiving a cancer diagnosis comes with an awareness that your body is no longer safe and the side effects of cancer treatment can cause drastic short term and long term physical changes. It can be overwhelming to adjust to these changes while also navigating treatment and personal relationships. This 4-week discussion series will explore the impact of cancer on body image and the unique challenges AYAs encounter navigating their relationship with their body both during and after treatment.

Week 2, September 12th: Accepting Body Changes
Week 3, September 19th: Bringing Sexy Back: Navigating Sex & Intimacy
