I am happy to share this information I received on the first National Women's Survivors Convention. It seems like it will be an informative and fun event.
WOMEN SURVIVORS ALLIANCE ANNOUNCES
NATION’S FIRST NATIONAL WOMEN ONLY SURVIVORS CONVENTION IN
AUGUST 2013 IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE!
The Women Survivors Alliance (WSA) will host its inaugural event, the nation’s premier National Women’s Survivors Convention, August 22-24, 2013 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN.
“The Women Survivors Alliance (WSA) has issued a national call to action for women affected by cancer so they can find their voice, improve their quality of life, embrace their new normal and help others,” says Karen Shayne, Founder and Executive Director National Women's Survivors Convention. “The convention will bring together survivors, survivors caregivers, family members and health care professionals so they can share in a powerful way."
No, this is NOT your ordinary convention! This three-day, one-of-a-kind, high energy and entertaining experience for women survivors of all ages, all stages and all types of cancers and their caregivers offers a program of interactive workshops, keynotes, networking with other survivors, a special track for younger survivors (ages 18-35), an Survivors Marketplace Expo, head-to-toe makeovers, a 5K walk/run, spa experiences, individual empowerment sessions/demonstrations, and a celebrity concert finale. Events surrounding the conference include a national cancer survivor life makeover contest, fashion show and survivor home makeover.
There are more than 7 million women cancer survivors in the United States. Survivors must address the long-term and life limiting effects of treatments including physical, emotional, psychosocial, sexual, legal and financial challenges and issues.
