Discussion Series, Connection & Isolation: Cancer’s Impact on Social & Family Relationships
September 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until September 27, 2022
After going through a cancer diagnosis and treatment at such a crucial life stage, many AYA patients and survivors feel profoundly changed — and those changes often ripple outwards to your interpersonal relationships. Some relationships may be strengthened by the challenges of an intense experience like cancer, while others may become strained or even fade away. As social connection and support is so critical to the wellbeing of AYA patients and survivors, it’s important to create space to explore how cancer has impacted your social world. Join this Discussion Series for an opportunity to learn from experts and talk with your peers about how your relationships with friends, lovers, family, colleagues, or acquaintances have been shifted or changed by your cancer experience.
