Did you know up to 70% of breast cancer survivors report moderate to high levels of fear of cancer recurrence? Project Pink’d, an Omaha-based non-profit, continues to address the REAL issues survivors face after a diagnosis and is set to host a new survivorship program, Let’s Talk Recurrence | Fear. Risk. Reality on Thursday, September 12.

A complimentary event for breast cancer survivors, their caregivers and loved ones, the upcoming live panel discussion will provide a safe place for interactive conversation with 6 distinguished expert panelists. Moderated by Cynthia Sturgeon, Founder & President of Project Pink’d, and a 12 year survivor, attendees will be provided the opportunity to ask their questions during a 60 minute conversation Q&A.

“Survivors and their caregivers are often overwhelmed by the number of opinions given and choices to be made with a breast cancer diagnosis. It takes a multi-disciplinary team to provide the best care for breast cancer survivors and communication is imperative for both the patient and medical team. I am so thankful for the support we have received from our medical community. Their dedication to share information and commitment to patient care is exemplary. We are excited to provide a forum where medical professionals from different disciplines and breast cancer survivors can have an open and honest discussion about an important topic such as recurrence,” stated Project Pink’d Founder & President, Cynthia Sturgeon.
