Chicago Event 6/4
The Answers To Cancer Public Forum
Set for Saturday, June 4, 2011 from 1-3pm, at the Hilton Chicago, Answers to Cancer will feature a distinguished panel of survivors, physicians, and other professionals who will offer their perspectives on a wide range of survivorship issues - including new research, coping with cancer, and the array of quality-of-life issues encountered when navigating life as a survivor. The program will also include an interactive question-and-answer period.
Answers to Cancer is free of charge and open to the public. The forum will also be taped and available for viewing later on www.conquercancerfoundation.org/answers. (To view the 2010 pilot event, please visit www.cancer.net/answerstocancer.)

With your help, we'll continue to be there for survivors.
Finding answers. Building community. Sharing knowledge.
Cancer changes everything. Some survivors find that priorities and perspectives shift. Relationships may change. New physical realities may emerge. Anxiety may increase in some areas and melt away in others. And the hardest thing of all can be returning to that which was once ordinary. Because after cancer, life is - in one way or another - extraordinary.
Many survivors are deeply committed to being vigilant and well-informed. And with good reason.
Information transforms and saves lives. Research shows that well-informed patients are better equipped to make decisions and cope with cancer, and are more likely to be aware of and receive the latest treatments. Through Answers to Cancer, the Conquer Cancer Foundation is channeling the expertise of the world's leading oncology experts to empower survivors through knowledge - bringing us one step closer to our vision of a world free from the fear of cancer.
