The ETMC Breast Care Center is holding a free, one-day retreat for breast cancer survivors on Friday, Oct. 7, featuring breast cancer survivor Anne Barab as guest speaker.
The ETMC Pink Ribbon Getaway will be held at the ETMC Pavilion, 801 Clinic Drive, with registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. and the conference concluding at 2 p.m. The conference is supported by The Robert M. Rogers Foundation, JCPenney, Tyler Professional Fire Fighters Association, Mineola Fire Department and the ETMC Foundation.
The event will feature topics such as a physician panel discussion, nutrition tips, lymphedema management and door prizes. JCPenney will provide a makeup demonstration for cancer survivors.
The keynote luncheon speaker, Anne Barab of Dallas, learned she had cancer six years ago during the week of her daughter’s wedding. In her presentation, “The Big C and Me,” she talks about laughing and learning how to cope when cancer or another tragedy strikes.
