Continuing Your Journey of Discovery—Through Every Life-Changing Experience

You've often heard—or, perhaps, said yourself—that the moment a woman hears "you have breast cancer," her world stops. But that is not the case for long. From that point on life goes on, and being a survivor or MBC thriver becomes a part of who you are. Just how big a part depends on you—and it most likely waxes and wanes as you move through treatment and life after, or living with, breast cancer. Integrated with breast cancer in shaping your unique self are all the roles you embrace—mother, partner, career woman, sister, advocate, neighbor, daughter and so on—and the impact of experiences that determine how you navigate through life. 

So how do you manage all these influences without losing a true sense of yourself? How do nurture your willingness and ability to discover new aspects about you and desires for your life? How can you embrace every life-changing experience as an exciting part of your personal growth and evolution?

These are some of the questions Karen Kaufman will help answer by leading an open discussion with you and your peers during this engagement. And, by the end of it all you'll come to understand that there is no right or wrong way to nurture self-awareness, as long as your process takes you on a journey that you—and you alone—can accept, be confident in, feel good about and draw on for personal growth.

Highlights of our hour together will include:

  • Peer sharing. Several survivors and thrivers offer insights on how much or little breast cancer contributes to their "definition of self" as they move further past their diagnoses, from one year to 25+ years.
  • Who are you? The group will discuss roles and influences other than breast cancer that need to be honored as part of defining and evolving your true self.
  • Self-awareness and self-acceptance. We will define these concepts and explore the value of achieving them as part of your journey after breast cancer.
  • Life-changing events. Karen shares personal and professional insights and practices to help you "go with" and "grow from" life's highs, lows and everything in between.


Registration is free and required. Sign up now.
