April's Guest Speaker


Last night was our first guest speaker.  It was a lot of fun.  Gina Ward talked to us about nutrition and answered all of our questions.  Some of us stayed around talking until after 9 p.m.  We met a new person there who found out about us because of the class.  I hope she will be joining us soon.

Next months topic will be Hormone Treatments:  Tamoxifen vs Aromatase inhibitors.  What are our options, what are the benefits and side effects. Make sure that you know if you are Estrogen, Progesterone, or HER2 positive or negative so that you will know what information applies to you.

This was the most requested topic from everyone in the group.  Because of the high interest in the topic please RSVP to me at youngsurvivorsisters@gmail.com if you are planning on coming so I can reserve a larger room if necessary.  Oncologist, Dr. Carl Gray will be our guest speaker on Wednesday, April 21st.

Thank you to Cindy Stewart from Davis Hospital for arranging our speakers and providing a location for us to meet at.
