Frankly Speaking About Cancer®
Frankly Speaking About Cancer® is Cancer Support Community’s landmark cancer education series, providing sound medical and psychological information for people with cancer and their loved ones through printed materials and in-person seminars.
The in-person cancer education workshops have long been a hallmark of Cancer Support Community’s dedication to empowering patients, caregivers and loved ones to gain knowledge as it relates to their own personal experience with cancer. Each workshop is led by a health care professional specializing in the cancer-related workshop topic being presented.
This unique format offers participants an opportunity to connect with others experiencing similar needs and concerns, as well as a health care professional, outside of the doctor’s office in a comfortable, safe and relaxed environment. You will have a chance to ask questions of medical professionals, patients, and other experts.
