Learn about brain fog with Heather at SC2011August 5, 2011
Heather Palmer will make her first trip to the Survivor Conference this fall to speak about cancer-related brain fog. She is an experienced speaker who runs cancer-related brain fog across the country, and is looking forward to meeting more young adult cancer survivors in order to gain insight to serve them better.
“I feel that although cancer-related brain fog is a big topic, experienced by many cancer survivors, it is not well understood or addressed by healthcare professionals, the public, and the survivors themselves. Rather than just accepting the cognitive changes often associated with cancer, I think it is important that people realize there is something that can be done about it,” she said.
She hopes SC2011 delegates will “get a sense of relief when they discover that cognitive difficulties associated with cancer are quite common and experienced by many…Most importantly, I want them to know that, with practice, they can regain cognitive function they may have felt was lost for good.”
Heather’s talk will help you identify the symptoms, learn a bit about how the brain works, and gain a set of tools that will help you manage any cognitive changes you may be experiencing.
Keep a lookout for her friendly face since she has said, “I am looking forward to returning home with lots of email addresses, phone numbers, good memories, and some new BFFs!”
