Join us for Lost and Found: Reestablishing Intimacy with Young Adult Cancer. This workshop has helped past participants dip their toes back into the water of intimacy after diagnosis and treatment. Using journal techniques and cultivating an action plan for self-care, in 6 weeks you will have the opportunity to emerge from the water renewed, informed, and ready to reconnect. Join other young cancer survivors (women only) who understand what you’ve gone through while learning how to reconnect, welcoming a compassionate understanding of your body now, and creating ways to open your heart to intimate opportunities after cancer.
