Breast cancer survivor program planned

The Breast Cancer Network of Western New York will present a free breast cancer survivorship program in Fredonia on Saturday, March 9. The Day of Renewal program offers people impacted by breast cancer an opportunity to gather and learn new coping skills to help them navigate through their treatment and survivorship.

This is the third in a series of Day of Renewal programs planned throughout Western New York by the group and will present hands-on workshops for therapeutic arts, floral arranging, and reiki.

“It is such a joy to be able to give these women an opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, and try to forget about breast cancer for a few hours,” said BCN President Amy Hartl. “And they can take what they learn here and make it all part of their lives.”

The program will take place at Main Street Studios in Fredonia from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes lunch and takeaways for the attendees. Registration and more information can be found at www.bcnwny.org or by calling 716-706-0060.

The Breast Cancer Network of WNY is a local, independent, community-based organization with a mission to support the well being of all Western New Yorkers impacted by breast cancer. Founded in 1988 by a group of breast cancer survivors and now located on Delaware Avenue in Buffalo, the organization has grown over the years to become a leading source of support, education, and advocacy for breast cancer survivors in Western New York.
