Speaking of survivorship

All over the country this weekend, there will be National Cancer Survivors Day events. I'm off to Indianapolis for the The Wellness Community of Central Indiana's 3rd annual Survivorship Symposium, a free educational symposium for people with cancer, their loved ones, and health care professionals. Tomorrow morning, I'll open the symposium by doing the most powerful thing you can do after you've had cancer: live to tell about it.

By the Wellness Community's definition, the term "cancer survivors" refers to those people who have been diagnosed with cancer and the people in their lives who are affected by the diagnosis, including family members, friends, and caregivers. Every one of them has a unique perspective on an amazing journey of pain and discovery, and I look forward to hearing their stories.

Speaking tomorrow afternoon at the Indie conference is the ridiculously talented and hilarious Scott Burton, world champion juggler and author of A Life in the Balance, a refreshingly honest, funny and inspirational book on surviving cancer. (Check him out!)
