(MINOT, ND)— The Trinity CancerCare Center will observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month with its 3rd annual Breast Cancer Support Symposium Thursday, Oct. 12, at 6:30 p.m. in the CancerCare Center Lobby.

Breast cancer patients, survivors, and others are welcome to participate in the evening, which will feature a panel discussion called “Your Breast Cancer Journey and Survivorship.”

“We have a great group of panelists lined up again this year,” said Jenene Kittleson, RN, the Center’s patient navigator. “The panel will include five breast cancer survivors talking about their perspective of what the breast cancer journey was for them, and participation from people in attendance will be encouraged.”

Topics will include the experience of breast cancer from diagnosis to post-treatment and concerns surrounding survivorship such as financial problems, physical concerns, relationship issues, returning to work, survivorship guilt, and living within the shadow of cancer. A survivorship nurse practitioner, a medical oncologist, a lymphedema therapist, and other providers will be on hand.

“Our goal is to help breast cancer survivors face their breast cancer journey through open discussion of experiences, all the while understanding that each person’s journey is an individual path,” Kittleson said.

Refreshments and door prizes will be provided. SPACE index.php
