CancerCare Annual Survivorship Series: Living With, Through & Beyond Cancer

CancerCare Banner

Cancer survivors and family members are invited to attend our annual CancerCare events, focusing on common issues that occur after treatment. The first half of the workshop will feature a 30-minute podcast recording featuring CancerCare expert speakers, followed by a panel of MD Anderson experts who will take questions from the audience. 

This educational series is presented by Anderson Network’s PIKNIC (Partners In Knowledge, News In Cancer). Lunch will be provided by the Department of Volunteer Services for the first 15 patients and family members.

The presentations will be held in the Mays Clinic, Floor 1, Room 1.2345 near Elevator S. Each session starts at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m. Our Regional Care Center locations will participate in these events via real-time video conference.
