The Cancer Support Center will host its second annual Survivor Conference on Saturday, Sept. 15, at Chamberlain College of Nursing, 18624 W Creek Dr., Tinley Park.
“Survive and Thrive” is the theme for the free program from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. for those who have battled or are currently battling cancer, and their caregivers. The event is designed to physically, emotionally and mentally enhance the lives of participants.
Healthcare professionals will speak on cancer-related topics, including “Improving Relationships Through Communication,” “Survivorship 101,” “Making Your Health a Priority” and “Understanding the Differences in Various Types of Imaging.”
A resource fair will give participants an opportunity to gather information relating to beneficial services.
