Breast cancer survivorship conference slated for April 11

The Lucas County Breast Health Coalition, with help from The University of Toledo Center for Health and Successful Living, is hosting a survivorship conference for breast cancer survivors 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 11, at the Lourdes University Franciscan Conference Center.

“Spring into Survivorship” includes a presentation entitled “My Winged Victory,” given by breast cancer survivor Molly McDonald, along with educational sessions about yoga, nutrition, finances and finding your passion for life again after cancer.

The Lucas County Breast Health Coalition is a multidisciplinary team of health care professionals, public health professionals and community members who advocate for breast health education, early detection and continuity of breast health services.

The mission of the Lucas County Breast Health Coalition is to provide an opportunity for all northwest Ohio community-based resources involved in breast care to plan, communicate and coordinate services, along with providing screening, education and prevention initiatives. The Coalition serves as a resource for the community.

UT’s Center for Health and Successful Living is a community hub of resources, education and supportive services for individuals living with chronic disease – including breast cancer. The services and staff at the Center equip and empower breast cancer survivors to live longer, healthier and happier lives while reducing the risk of cancer recurrence. The Center’s ultimate goal is to return and restore all of its members to optimum health and wellness.
