Join Living Beyond Breast Cancer for our next free teleconference, Managing Weight After Breast Cancer, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on Tuesday, August 17.

Kathryn A. Allen, MA, RD, CSO, director of nutrition therapy at Moffitt Cancer Center, will help you understand:

• Why breast cancer treatment can prompt changes in weight and bone density
• Dietary and fitness recommendations, whether you are in treatment or you finished initial therapy
• Practical strategies for incorporating healthful eating and fitness into your daily routine

Please take advantage of this free educational session. I know Kathy and know that she is deeply committed to providing the best possible nutritional care to all cancer patients at her cancer center. Kathy will certainly provide an informative session about the nutrition programs available at her cancer center that help breast cancer patients with weight management in order to reduce the odds of cancer recurrence and death and also optimize their chances for long-term survival and overall health and wellness along with opportunities to ask questions.

Sadly, I think everyone likely knows a friend, relative, neighbor, or co-worker who has had a breast cancer diagnosis. However, please feel free to share this hopeful information about this helpful web-based program that is sure to give both "information and inspiration" to all those women who are looking for reliable information and examples of how they can help themselves live life to the fullest beyond breast cancer!

Cultivate your life - you are what you grow, inch by inch, row by row,
