Through Each Other's Eyes

Through Each Other's Eyes

Being diagnosed with cancer changes one’s life forever. How we think, feel, and cope is unique to each of us. By looking through

each other’s eyes, we can see the ways others have made sense of living with cancer, helping us in turn to better understand our

own experience. Listening can inspire us to reconsider our past, take action in the present, or prepare for challenges in the future.

In this year’s conference, our keynote speakers and panelists will help us to explore what we have learned from living with cancer

and to consider the choices available to us as we move forward.
