Trauma to Treasure: Finding Strength Through Life Challenging Experiences
Cancer presents a profound challenge to living a “normal” life but also provides survivors an opportunity to create a path for living that is consciously chosen. This presentation will focus on the inherent strengths of individuals to build a future based on lessons learned from their cancer experience.

Roadmaps & Safety Nets: Planning for Life With, Through & Beyond Cancer
After a cancer diagnosis, individuals and loved ones begin a journey of survival through “seasons” or stages that require different choices, decisions and resources. A shift from passive patient to proactive survivor helps to foster a sense of hopefulness and cautious optimism when planning for life with, through and beyond cancer.
