Body, Mind, Spirit 2010: National Conference for Young Women Living with Breast Cancer

The Canadian Breast Cancer Network and co-presenter the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation are pleased to announce that they will be hosting a 2nd conference for young women living with breast cancer entitled Body, Mind, Spirit 2010: National Conference for Young Women Living with Breast Cancer at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Toronto on October 29-31, 2010.

This year’s conference will bring together young women living with breast cancer, researchers, medical professionals, support organizations and decision makers from across Canada. Plenary sessions will cover the topics of Healthy Living and Hope and Empowerment. Over 35 workshops will give survivors the opportunity to learn and share information on: intimacy & sexuality, changing relationships, the latest research, complimentary therapies, finances, healthy eating, healthy living, talking to your children, personalized treatment, survivorship, lymphedema, breast reconstruction, meditation, yoga, celebrating life and many more.

There will be workshops with a special focus on women living with metastatic breast cancer discussing the latest research, survivorship, clinical trials and finances. They’ve also added a special BRCA series for survivors and previvors. This series will cover issues related to fertility, management options and psychosocial issues.

CBCN is thrilled to welcome Canada’s queen of rock, Bif Naked, as one of their key note speakers. Bif will share her survivor story, “Rock Your Cancer,” as well as some of her healthy lifestyle choices and what it means to be a raw food vegan.

The first CBCN National Conference for Young Women Living with Breast Cancer was held in Toronto in November 2007 under the theme “Getting together to inform, support and inspire.” It was attended by 326 young survivors and provided young women living with breast cancer the opportunity to learn and share with other breast cancer survivors.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with other survivors, share your story, learn about new research and information, gain practical advice to apply to your life and experience a weekend of empowerment and hope.

Registration for this conference will be opening soon via the CBCN website at www.cbcn.ca . If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive updates on the conference and notification as soon as registration opens, please email {encode=”jmcneil@cbcn.ca” title=”jmcneil@cbcn.ca”} .
