We could all use a little fun—and “grandmotherly advice”—these days! Join us for a light-hearted, insightful engagement with your peers from the survivor and metastatic breast cancer community—and award-winning author and relationship counselor Lynn Hubschman.

We’ve all had “the talk.” But never like this...

... And certainly never with our grandmother! Lynn Hubschman—aka “Woozie” (grandmother)—has taken the self-help, relationship-counseling and sex-advice arenas by storm with her humorous, yet reality-based, approach to empowering individuals to understand and enrich the relationships they have with themselves and others.

Komen Philadelphia is thrilled to have Lynn bring her unique style, professional insights and life-changing pearls of wisdom to this online engagement—and specifically address the challenges, wants and needs of breast cancer survivors and women living with metastatic breast cancer. Register and join us for a spirited discussion and Q&A, exploring topics including:

  • How much longer can I shelter in place with this same person? Constructive ways to deal with the challenges and surprising opportunities to add more spark to your time together.
  • Getting a better read on the dynamics. Understanding your relationship with yourself and your partner.
  • The woes. How much work to put into it and when to walk away from it.
  • The wonders. Uncovering the hidden gems of happiness and fulfillment in your relationships.

Register here to join us at no charge—then get ready to laugh, explore, share and experience the joy of an evening with Woozie.
