This one day educational conference targets an audience of both childhood and young adult cancer survivors, their family members and supporters, healthcare and community professionals from a wide geographical population spanning all of Ontario, Western Quebec and across Canada. The conference, held in the heart of downtown Ottawa is open to anyone (over the age of 16) who is interested in learning more about successful cancer survivorship and health-related quality of life. The conference will consist of a morning session of educational and motivational presentations and after being treated to a social luncheon you will attend two of your chosen workshops in the afternoon from topics including living beyond the fear of cancer, relationships, isolation, do-it-yourself adventures, transitioning into successful survivorship and reintrajectorization (huh? we know, you’ll have to attend to find out!).
But wait, that’s not all…..new to our conference this year is an exciting and much wanted Social Event!!! Check out the link above and join your friends and peers at the Saturday evening Social Event for a night of networking fun, laughter and good times. We know the 2011 SHARE conference will motivate childhood cancer survivors to be proactive in self-education and self-management, recognize what a healthy quality of life can be and seek out an adventure of their own!
On behalf of the conference planning committee We look forward to reconnecting with friends and meeting new cancer survivors and their supporters as we celebrate Cancer Survivorship together!
