Young Adults Embracing Survivorship (YES) 2012

CALLING ALL BALTIMORE-AREA YOUNG ADULT CANCER SURVIVORS!

Saturday, June 2, 2012 marks the 5th Annual Y.E.S. (Young Adults Embracing Survivorship) Program at the Y of Central Maryland, Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Family Center at Stadium Place (the former site of the historic Memorial Stadium).

Young adult survivors and patients in their 20s and 30s, as well as family members and loved ones, are invited to attend this day of education, peer support, and FUN!

This year’s theme is Enhancement of Survivorship through Complementary and Integrative Therapies.  Participants will be able to choose between small groups on acupuncture, meditation, reiki and massage. Breakfast and lunch will be served and a large group discussion will take place on nutrition.

Remember that you are a cancer “survivor” from the day of diagnosis and family members and loved ones are truly “co-survivors.”  We promise this will be a day you do not want to miss!  Attendees in the past have joined us from all over the Baltimore region and have made connections and friendships that have lasted through all of the ups and downs cancer can throw at us.  In addition to learning about ways that you can promote healing and care for your body and spirit, you will have the opportunity to learn about all of the programs offered by the Ulman Cancer Fund and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, as well as win some fabulous door prizes!!!

The Y.E.S. Program is entirely free, childcare is available and transportation assistance is offered to those participants who qualify.  Y.E.S. is a project of the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society- Maryland Chapter, Towson University Department of Nursing and our very generous hosts for the last 5 years, the Y of Central Maryland Stadium Place.

Please RSVP by May 28th by registering at: http://www.ulmanfund.org/Get-Involved/Events-Calendar/YES-Program/YES-Registration.aspx
