Before you begin treatment, you will be scheduled to attend a New Patient Chemotherapy Class. In this session you will learn about what to expect during chemotherapy, how to manage possible side effects, how to look after yourself during chemotherapy and have the opportunity to ask questions about chemotherapy. You will also be given the book, Learning about chemotherapy treatment for patients and families, to take home with you. Please bring one family member or friend with you to the New Patient Chemotherapy Class.
This biennial one-day event hosted by the Juravinski Cancer Centre is for individuals touched by breast cancer, survivors and caregivers alike. It will provide you with the opportunity to come together to learn, talk and enjoy the fellowship of others who have also been affected by this disease and its treatment. Our focus for the conference remains unchanged - how to live well with a diagnosis of breast cancer. Our planning committee manages to line up key speakers and topics that we hope you will find both useful and entertaining!
