Local Experts to Address “Different Perspectives on Living with Cancer”
Public Invited to Hear Medical Professionals Discuss Living with Cancer
There is no handbook for living with cancer—or for being a cancer survivor, a caregiver or a supporter of someone living with cancer. To help answer some of life’s questions about cancer, a panel of experts will be hosting a discussion called Different Perspectives on Living with Cancer. The public is invited to attend the free forum at Gilda’s Club Dining Room, 7907 UW Health Court in Middleton on Saturday, March 17, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
The forum will be moderated by Ed Prendergast, MD, Dean Clinic Hematology & Oncology. Panelists are Dena Green, MD, Hospice and Palliative Board certified oncologist with Agrace HospiceCare; Garth Heckman, 45-year-old colon cancer survivor, pastor of Harmony Church and owner of SouthSide Bully gym and training; Pamela Wick, RN, OCN, clinical RN advisor for Dean Clinic Hematology & Oncology; Lauren Cunningham, PhD, psychologist and Instant Sisters facilitator for Gilda’s Club and Emily Link, MEd, Gilda’s Club facilitator.
People interested in attending are encouraged to submit questions for the panel at the time of registration. Questions can be related to any cancer topic involving patients, survivors, caregivers or loved ones of those with cancer. Questions can also be submitted to the panel during the event.
To register for the forum, visit www.gildasclubmadison.org or call (608) 828-8880. Space is limited. For people not physically able to attend, a limited number of phone lines are available to call in to listen or ask questions during the event. Please reserve a call-in line at the time of registration. A complimentary light breakfast will be provided by the Agrace HospiceCare Doc Rock Café.
