On Saturday, November 6th, 2010 the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Survivorship Program and Seattle Children's Hospital will host its second pediatric Moving Beyond Cancer to Wellness educational event.
This year's keynote speaker is Sean Swarner. Sean is a two-time pediatric cancer survivor, Advanced Stage IV Hodgkins disease (age 13) and Askin’s Sarcoma (age 16). He uses his experiences to help others touched by cancer with a mission that started in 2002 when he became the first cancer survivor to summit Mount Everest. Founder of the CancerClimber Association, he has since tackled what’s known as the 7-Summits (climbing the highest peak on all seven continents.) The 35 year-old from Colorado continues to share his message of healing and triumph with cancer patients worldwide during his expeditions and presentations.
This event will also offer breakout sessions led by experts in the fields of nutrition, friendships and dating, insurance coverage, emotional adaptation and fertility. A lecture on Late Effects from Cancer Treatment will be included in the seminar so all participants may attend.
This free event is recommended for cancer survivors age 12 and older and parents of cancer survivors of all ages. Space is limited and registration is required. You can register online or by calling 206.667.5262.
