Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Breast Cancer but Were Afraid to Ask
Breast cancer affects a woman's life in many different ways so this October to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Action Quebec (BCAQc) has invited authorities from three separate professions to share their expertise and answer questions.
Date: Thursday, October 25, 2018
Time: from 7 pm to 9 pm
Place: The Centre for Sustainable Development, 50 Saint-Catherine Street West
The event is free and simultaneous translation will be provided
Following the presentations, three BCAQc members - Jocelyne Lamoureux, Rosanne Cohen and Patricia Kearns will give brief testimonies of living with breast cancer in relation to the three aspects highlighted during this panel.As an antidote to October's tsunami of pink ribbon appeals and to underscore that breast cancer is a disease and not a marketing opportunity, Breast Cancer Action Quebec holds an alternative to pink event every year. This year, the public is invited to the free panel discussion, Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Breast Cancer but Were Afraid to Ask and is encouraged to bring along any and all questions.
