Strong Women Uplift Each Other Series: Women's Illness


On Wednesday October 18, 6:30 pm, our SWUE series will focus on Women's Illness. This powerful evening will begin with a screening of a 5 minute "pilot" episode of a new web series produced by our own trainer and cancer survivor Vera Trifunovich: "Bare Breasted Against Breast Cancer." Then our friend, Dr. Cecilia Dintino, will lead an open discussion for all our guests, speaking frankly about coping with serious female illnesses. If you have battled a female cancer, faced a critical health crisis, cared for a loved one, or just want to support your sisters please join us. You will be free to share you story or to simply listen. We believe that strength and healing is found in community and shared experience, and that Strong Women Uplift Each Other. 

"Bare-Breasted Against Breast Cancer" is a web-based video support forum that
provides authentic, anecdotal, firsthand information for breast cancer patients, their families, and their caregivers.
Our motto? “Let’s get breast cancer off our Chests."

Cost: $15
