You – or a loved one – have just been diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness. First reaction? Shock. Disbelief. Grief. How could this be happening? What do I do now?
The Patients 2.0 session – Taking Back Control and the Tools to Do It – through a panel briefing with well-known patient advocates and care partners, and breakout discussions that include session attendees – will arm you with actionable suggestions for how to better cope with and then manage your individual journey. Our panel has “been there” – and will share their own strategies for navigating the steps of selecting a medical team, taking part in treatment option decisions, weathering the emotions that go along with telling family and friends and asking for support when needed, getting through “watch and wait” and/or treatment, and recovery with life after serious illness or living with chronic disease.
