We are excited to introduce you to the new website for the Annual Conference for Young Women Affected by Breast Cancer, www.c4yw.org! The new look and feel of the conference materials and website reflect the youthfulness of the conference. C4YW – short for Conference for Young Women – is a reflection of you and we hope you like it! Take a moment to explore the new website and be sure to check out the new features like our Connect message boards, Facebook, Twitter and Flickr feeds and more. We are looking forward to updating the website with new and exciting C4YW updates throughout the next few months and encourage all of you to continue checking back and becoming active participants on our message boards, Facebook and other social networking sites.
This year we are offering a wide array of workshop topics, plenary presentations, and special events. We will begin the weekend on Friday afternoon with workshops covering an assortment of topics including the mind/body connection and breast cancer and the environment. On Saturday, we will start the day with our annual medical update for young women followed by our second plenary on self-image and an afternoon filled with your choice of two workshops. A few of our new topics featured on Saturday will be advocacy and inclusion, survivorship care plans, and creating a legacy in letters. On Sunday, we will begin the morning with another selection of workshop sessions. Sunday’s workshop sessions will feature a few popular topics such as healthy living and talking to your children about breast cancer. We will close out the weekend together with our closing plenary on spirituality. For a full list of conference workshops, click here.
Don’t forget our annual favorites! Friday night, we will feature the Pure Romance PJ Party, along with a few other events to choose from. We are hoping you will put on your dancing shoes on Saturday night and join us for DJ, Dancing & Desserts! Check out our special events page to plan ahead to participate in these events and many more.
Don’t forget to post to our message boards where you can meet new people, connect with old friends and find roommates!
We hope you like the new website and we look forward to your feedback.
