Reflections: Body image after a breast cancer diagnosis
July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT
Breast cancer can change the way your body feels and the way you feel about your body and yourself. Many young women say they don’t recognize the person in the mirror anymore—sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the worse. This program will offer you specific steps to move toward understanding and accepting your changed body, self-image, and health.
Our guest speaker will discuss the different ways young women feel about their bodies before and after breast cancer, how to adapt to changes in your body during and after treatment, and practical ways to take the first steps toward self-acceptance and love. In addition, young women impacted by breast cancer will share how they felt before and after treatment, and what they’re doing to move their lives forward.
A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
