Wellness Weekend brings together two of our most popular programs, our annual fall conference, Breast Cancer Today: Individual Treatments, Shared Experiences, with our signature fundraising event, Yoga on the Steps. Read this letter from Catherine L. Ormerod, LBBC’s vice president of programs and partnerships, to learn about this event in Denver from September 18 – September 20, 2015.
Welcome to Wellness Weekend—three days of connection, information and inspiration from Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
Today, a breast cancer diagnosis requires more than just having the facts. To make the best decisions for your treatment and your life, you want information that helps you understand your options and the possible side effects. Getting good care means knowing where to find help and support, for yourself and for those who love you. And it means caring for yourself as a whole person—understanding how cancer impacts you physically, emotionally and spiritually.
At Wellness Weekend, we connect you with people across the country who share your concerns. Our annual fall conference, Breast Cancer Today: Individual Treatments, Shared Experiences, offers tailored information via three tracks:
- Triple-negative breast cancer, presented in partnership with Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation
- Hormone receptor-positive or HER2-positive breast cancer
- Metastatic breast cancer, with information on all subtypes
Select a morning plenary and follow the tracked workshops throughout the day. Or mix and match to make the day your own. You’ll also find workshops specific to young women, those coping with inflammatory breast cancer, and caregivers.
Take advantage of opportunities to connect, including our opening reception Friday evening and optional offsite activities Saturday night.
Cap off your weekend with Yoga on the Steps: Denver. On Sunday morning, we’ll gather outdoors at Cheesman Park, where the Denver community will join us in an all-levels yoga class and Healthy Living Expo to raise awareness of LBBC—and to celebrate our collective strength.
It will be a weekend of connection, information and inspiration. We hope you can join us.
