The Phoenix Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure will host a free community conference designed to help breast cancer survivors learn more about their disease, connect with local resources and network with fellow survivors. Co-survivors are also welcome to attend.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Survivor Education and Empowerment Conference will take place on Saturday, June 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Chandler Center for the Arts, 250 N. Arizona Avenue in Chandler. The event will feature a main panel discussion, two breakout sessions and a chance for participants to network over lunch, which will be provided.

The main panel discussion, scheduled at 11:45, is entitled, “Reducing Your Future Risk of Breast Cancer by Nurturing the Mind, Body and Spirit.” Morning breakout sessions will cover topics such as “Newly Diagnosed: Financial Assistance Options and Navigating the Resources

Available to You and Your Family,” and “Breast Cancer and Your Relationships: How to Approach Challenging Emotional, Physical and Sexual Issues.”

Registration is required. Participants can register by emailing their name and desired breakout session to info@komenphoenix.org by Friday, June 3. To learn more about the Survivor Education and Empowerment Conference, visitkomenphoenix.org or call 602-544-2873.
