WEBINAR. Coping with October: Ideas for Those Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer

Monday , October 6, 2014  12:30-1:30 PM ET

sponsored by SHAREcancersupport and MBCN

Breast Cancer Awareness Month can be difficult  for those living with MBC.
Their reality of being in treatment for life is generally ignored in favor
of stories urging early detection or celebrating the end of treatment.  It
may seem as if friends, media, and the general public just don't get it.
Feelings of anger, isolation, and depression are common.  In this session,
specifically tailored for October-related issues,  Dr. Don Dizon, an
oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, shares some
coping strategies.
