Seminar: Navigating Cancer

A couple of days ago I received an e-mail asking if I would pass along the information below, concerning an informational seminar in Washington D.C. later this month. Happy to do it, this looks good. Here's the press release:

Washington Cancer Institute at Washington Hospital Center invites you to the first in our series of free Living Well with Cancer seminars to be held throughout 2008. The first event, Navigating Life after Cancer: A Road Map for the “New Normal,” will feature two speakers, both well-respected experts in working with cancer patients and the challenges they face. Brenda Hubbard, RN, an oncology nurse and patient educator at Washington Cancer Institute at Washington Hospital Center, will address some of the physical, psychological and spiritual issues that come with a cancer diagnosis. Patricia Smith, an attorney, will focus on navigating employment and insurance issues.

The event will be held on Saturday, January 26, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the National Rehabilitation Hospital Auditorium located on the Washington Hospital Center campus, 102 Irving St., NW, Washington, DC 20010. To register, please call 202-877-DOCS (3627) or register online at

FDR said, "attitude is everything," and it sure helps when you are dealing with cancer. Just don't expect yourself to have that magical "positive" attitude all the time and don't feel bad when you don't. You are going to have lots of different feelings along the way and each one is legitimate at that time for you. Your attitude does not dictate your outcome. If you're doing well, GREAT! and go ahead and take credit for it--but if your cancer isn't doing what you wish it would (like go away and never come back), DO NOT feel like it's your fault. The body just doesn't work that way.
Best wishes for the best possible health--just do what you can with what you have at this moment.
