This program should be of significant interest to those with high risk of breast cancer, breast cancer and breast disease patients, their caregivers, and people who want to better support loved ones and friends with breast cancer.
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, you are at high risk of breast cancer, or someone you love has breast cancer, then you need to attend our unique, FREE support event, Lighting Your Path – Navigating Your Breast Cancer Subtype. Both breast cancer survivors, including those with metastatic breast cancer, and their caregivers/loved ones are encouraged to attend. You can learn ways to navigate recurrence and common stumbling blocks to achieving a full, rewarding life while living with breast cancer from nationally-recognized and local breast cancer experts. Caregivers can learn proven strategies for optimal support. There are also social opportunities during the event to create relationships with others in the Las Vegas, NV, area facing breast cancer, expanding your support network. Exhibits will also be available with products to help your breast cancer journey and giveaways for attendees!
