Triage Cancer: Caring for Yourself, Staying Engaged, and Navigating the Holiday Season
Nov 15 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

From Triage Cancer. The holiday hustle and bustle can be overwhelming and exhausting for any one.  As a cancer survivor currently in treatment or still managing long term effects, or a caregiver for someone coping with cancer, this time of year amps up the complexity of self care.  Social gatherings, endless to do lists, never-ending joy and the expectation to do it all are often in stark contrast to the reality of treatment schedules, test results and the uncertainty of tomorrow.  During this webinar, take a break with us and some time to reflect on your priorities for the holiday season, the values that guide you through this time and the opportunities that provide the most fulfillment and true joy.  Being mindful of how you prepare for a busy social calendar or protect yourself from particularly tender moments may help you not only find your way through the frenzy, but care for yourself along the way.

Triage Cancer Balancing Work & Cancer Webinar: Body Confidence, Self-Confidence in the Workplace
Dec 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Changes in the body are common during and after cancer treatments and, understandably, may impact body image and self-confidence. For survivors who are either working through treatment or returning to work, knowing how to recognize negative body image and manage the feelings that accompany it can help reduce on-the-job anxiety, improve performance, and increase the ability to succeed professionally after cancer. In this webinar we will discuss:

  • How body image may be impacted by cancer and the effect of body changes at work
  • Practical tips and resources for understanding the feelings that may accompany unexpected changes in your body
  • Techniques to maintain or increase self-confidence while working or when returning to work
