Event description

Description

*Please note our new location this year! Oracle's Redwood Shores Conference Center is under construction this fall, but Oracle has been kind enough to allow us to use their Santa Clara Conference Center.*

Don’t miss BCC’s medical symposium and resource fair for those in-treatment or post-treatment for breast or ovarian cancer, as well as medical professionals, therapists, and health educators. This is a day to network, share knowledge, and inspire hope!

The conference features informative and inspiring talks on treatment and ongoing wellness. In addition, treat yourself to a free massage or a healing touch session, and explore our resource fair.

Complementary Therapies are offered throughout the day. Visit the BCC table at check-in to sign up!
