"My Notebook" A Workshop for Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients and their Families
Join cancer patient advocate and author Barbara Jaffe in this half-day workshop designed for individuals in the first few weeks following a new cancer diagnosis. Using Ms. Jaffe's book, My Notebook: A Guide for Newly Diagnosed Cancer Patients, we will discuss:
* Regaining control of your life after a cancer diagnosis
* Planning, coping and living with cancer
* Navigating basic cancer treatment options and choices
* Finding support at Wellness House and in your community
Each participating family will receive "My Notebook" a three-ring binder system for organizing vital health information during your cancer experience. The book also contains all information covered in this workshop and more!
