Thriving & Surviving
Komen Columbus is committed to develop programming as a response to community need. We saw a need for survivors to receive ongoing education about a range of issues, from financial to physical to psychosocial- throughout their survivorship journey- from diagnosis through the rest of their lives.
In response to that need, we’ve developed a monthly survivor e-newsletter full of information on lifestyle, financial and psychological survivorship issues, Q&A with clinical experts, research updates relevant to survivors, special events and opportunities and giveaways.
Past Articles and Topics Include
- Survivor holiday blues- how to enjoy the holidays without feelings of guilt
