MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Support Connection Inc. will host a free educational program “Managing Side Effects of Breast Cancer Treatments" from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 18 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church.
St. Mark's Episcopal Church is at 85 E. Main St., Mount Kisco.
Nancy Hacker, RN, BSN, OCN, certified oncology nurse at Memorial Sloan Kettering at Sleepy Hollow, will serve as an expert speaker. Her areas of focus include the education of patients undergoing treatment for breast and gynecological cancers. Her strengths include direct symptom management in relation to side effects from chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and radiation therapy.
The treatment of breast cancer with chemotherapy, targeted therapies, hormonal therapy and radiation therapy aims to eradicate cancer cells. Unfortunately, while doing their work, these treatments may also cause side effects which can be long-lasting and impact each person differently. This program will address the questions: What are the common side effects resulting from cancer treatment? How can the symptoms of side effects be managed to maintain quality of life during treatment and beyond?
Open to people living with breast cancer. Preregistration is required. To learn more or to preregister, call Support Connection at 914-962-6402 or 800-532-4290.
