Cancer support home presents: NO EXCUSES 

Free Breast Health Education Series – November Session

Press Release

Washington Regional
Free Breast Health Education Series – November Session

Coping with the demands of the holiday season can be extremely stressful, especially after receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer. As the November installment of its ongoing Breast Health Education Series, Washington Regional Cancer Support Home will present “Making Spirits Bright,” a 1-hour interactive discussion offering those coping with breast cancer support and suggestions for enjoying a meaningful and peaceful holiday season.

Led by licensed social worker Kim Copps of Corral Coaching and Counseling, the session will be held on Thursday, November 9, at 12 Noon at the Cancer Support Home in Bentonville. A light lunch will be served. This support service is offered free of charge to attendees, and breast cancer patients are encouraged to bring along a friend or family member.

The Breast Health Education Series is offered in an effort to stress the importance of education about issues related to breast cancer, and is made available through a grant received from the Susan G. Komen Ozark Race for the Cure®.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Cancer Support Home in Bentonville at (479) 271-2257. The Cancer Support Home in Bentonville, a service of Washington Regional, is located at 306 Highway 72 East.

The NO EXCUSES project is made possible by The Cancer Support Home, Washington Regional Medical Foundation and the Ozark Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Ozark Race for the Cure®.
