Please join Susan G. Komen Northeast Ohio at our 12th annual Breast Cancer Survivor Symposium. This inspiring and educational event is intended for any individual who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. The symposium is designed to address a wide range of survivors, from those who are two days into treatment to those who are thirty years out. Attendees will also be able to get information during the interactive vendor fair and network and mingle with fellow survivors.

The day features:

  • A provider panel with Dr. G. Thomas Budd, medical oncologist with The Cleveland Clinic; Dr. Janice Lyons, radiation oncologist with University Hospitals; and Dr. Benjamin Li, surgical oncologist with MetroHealth Medical Center.
  • Multiple breakout sessions on a variety of topics including coping with a diagnosis, exercise and nutrition, how to be an advocate for others, and the long-term effects of treatment. Please click here for a full list of breakout session topics, descriptions, and speakers.
  • A keynote address on the benefits of Reiki and integrative therapies for breast cancer patients from local Reiki master Judy McCracken of Reiki Rays of Hope.
