Breast Cancer conference this week!

The Canadian Breast Cancer Network with cooperation from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is holding a conference from October 29-31 in Toronto, Ontario. 400 women will gather at the Hilton to share info and experiences with other people who have been through it and/or are looking for support.

Young Adult Cancer Canada isn’t involved with the conference but we support initiatives to get people together. Knowing you’re not alone is a very powerful tool for young adult cancer survivors.

Some of the events include two gala dinners (one with Canadian rocker and breast cancer survivor Bif Naked and another with a pink carpet for the premiere of Jonna’s Body, Please Hold) and a keynote by Yvonne Jones, leader of the Liberal Party in Newfoundland, at Saturday’s breakfast about her recent diagnosis and upcoming treatment.

Please visit www.cbcn.ca for more details and for registration (registration will not be available at the venue).

For more information contact: Jenn McNeil, Canadian Breast Cancer Network: 1-800-685-8820 ext. 224, or jmcneil@cbcn.ca.
