Cancer Education Day
When Agata Robertson learned her breast cancer had not only returned, but had also spread to her bones, the future felt bleak. She says she could not have come as far as she has - living a fulfilling life with metastatic breast cancer - without a supportive care team and a determined oncologist.
"She never gives up on me, she always looks for alternatives when things don’t go as planned and she does everything in her power to prolong my life," says Robertson. “It is so important to stay positive."
This is the message Agata will be sharing with local health experts when she delivers the opening speech at the Erie St. Clair Regional Cancer Program’s Cancer Education Day event this Friday, December 13, 2019, at the Ciociaro Club.
About 120 healthcare providers from across the region are expected to attend the 9th Cancer Education Day conference, which will focus on the Breast Cancer Journey and Patient Wellness.
• Breast surgery and reconstruction options,
• Shared care between Oncology and Primary Care, and
• Early detection.
