Wishing you well,
Cancer and its treatment can affect our physical appearance and how we feel about ourselves. Body image is a complicated subject, but at its heart, body image is really about self-acceptance.
• What body image-related resources exist for cancer survivors?
Events and Community Education
Moving Beyond Cancer to Wellness, an annual event designed for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, friends, family and health care professionals, provides general education on a variety of the late- and long-term effects faced by cancer survivors after treatment is completed.
The Patient and Family Centered Care Program is recruiting Seattle Cancer Care Alliance survivors and families to collaborate with SCCA staff on policy and program development by offering the patient/family perspective on committees, focus groups and short-term projects.
In partnership with Gilda’s Club of Seattle, the Survivorship Program offers two upcoming lectures:
SCCA Patient & Family Education offers weekly free classes. The classes are open to patients, family members and caregivers coping with cancer, regardless of whether the patient is being treated by SCCA. Many are recorded and saved online; "like" the SCCA Patient and Family Education Facebook page to be notified of upcoming events and to view the video lectures. Go to https://www.facebook.com/SccaPatientFamilyEducation, or search for "SCCA Patient and Family Education" within the Facebook search bar.
Do you want to show the world your life beyond cancer? Inspire a newly diagnosed patient? Now is your chance! Cancer Today magazine is looking for photos or illustrations from cancer patients, survivors and caregivers living with and beyond cancer for their "In the Moment" feature.
