I work for the HPV and Anal Cancer Foundation (www.analcancerfoundation.org). On October 9th we have got an incredibly exciting event happeneing in New York City.
For the first time, a forum exclusively dedicated to anal cancer survivors will bring together a panel of experts to discuss long-term side effects and quality-of-life concerns after treatment. The Foundation is co-sponsoring this educational support meeting with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC).
The panel will focus on sexual function and management of side effects resulting from radiation therapy. We invite all anal cancer survivors and their families to this event. For a copy of the flyer, click Anal Cancer Survivors Forum. Please share information about this event with your family and friends.
