Partners in Survival: for Women with Cancer & the Men Who Support Them


Where: Mercy Hall Auditorium

When: Oct 5, From 5:30 pm - 8 pm
Fee: Free

Guest speaker Marc Heyison, president of Men Against Breast Cancer, will present Partners in Survival™ (Partners) program to help men navigate the crisis of cancer when it strikes the women they love.

While originally designed for breast cancer patients, this program is beneficial for women with any type of cancer and their partners.

The goal of Partners is to improve the quality of patient survivorship by teaching men proven problem solving techniques that focus on the needs of the cancer patient and family. The Partners program activities concentrate on empowering men and women to get the best from each other by working together towards a common goal and solving complex and emotionally laden problems – a process called gender synergy. During a breakout session, men will have an opportunity to have an open and interactive conversation about their role as caregivers, and women will be participating in Yoga, nutrition planning and Mindfulness activities.

Light hors d'oeuvres will be served. Space is limited.
