Free breast cancer survivors event at CCA


The Phoenix Affi liate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure will host The Survivor Education and Empowerment Conference, a free community event for breast cancer survivors, at the Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Ave. in downtown Chandler. The program runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sat., June 11. Several hundred breast cancer survivors from throughout the Valley and beyond are expected to attend. “Co-survivors,” or the individuals who help provide a support system for friends or loved ones who are faced with breast cancer, are also welcome.


The event will feature a main panel discussion, two breakout sessions and a chance for participants to network over lunch, which will be provided. “Our 2011 Community Profi le Report really highlighted some areas in which we could better serve local survivors,” says Beverly Kruse, the Komen Phoenix executive director. “When we reviewed the data from the survivor surveys especially, there were a handful of issues that came up again and again, such as the fear of reoccurrence, a need for more fi nancial assistance programs and more awareness of local resources such as support groups, wigs and prostheses. By working with community partners in our mission to empower Arizonans to conquer breast cancer, we hope that this event will give survivors the tools they need to do just that.”


Registration is required to attend. Email info@komenphoenix.org to sign up. For more information, call 602-544-2873.
