Survivorship Workshop


The  Second  Cancer Center Survivorship Workshop organized by a  remarkable committee of caregivers  and dedicated to the wellbeing of our cancer patients was a remarkable success.   Chaired by  Cate Mullen and ably assisted in the planning by Marybeth Singer, Paige Walsh, Lilla Rogers, Nadine Linendoll, Carrie Wechsler, Judith Kahn, Shellyann Herry and Tully Saunders, the entire team  provided a full day of activities for our patients and their families. Over 100 attended   and interacted with the Tufts CC team, our  wonderful speakers,   and interesting sessions. Held at the Courtyard Marriott, it was a great day all around.

Every goal  for this year seemed to have been met--- the program grew significantly, year over year,  the patients felt well cared for, and the there was great staff participation from all parts of the Cancer Center including  6 medical  faculty and many nursing, social work, survivorship, AYA, administrative personnel.  People who had not connected for nearly 20 yrs met and congratulated and supported each other.

This was a wonderful celebration of the great work that all members of the cancer center are doing to help patients on their journeys.  Thanks to the  committee for planning and  to all those who participated.
