The Breast Cancer Rehabilitation and Wellness Summit: Choice for survivors

Many people experience life long annoying or really difficult consequences from their life saving cancer treatment and do not know about services that help improve recovery and wellness. 

This is a creative new program to help breast cancer survivors know more about the types of services available to support better recovery and wellness.

Speakers from many different health and service backgrounds and from across the world come together and explain their rehabilitation and wellness stategies. They are all passionate about their solutions for common problems and side effects experienced by many people after breast cancer.

The Summit offers general information only, not individual health advice. Throughout the Summit viewers will be guided to take their new found information to a health provider to develop a comprehensive personal plan to achieve recovery and wellness. 

You will see at least five new pre-recorded video presentations each day. Presentations will cover:

  • Managing changes to sexuality
  • Mastectomy scar tissue treatments
  • Cording assessment and treatments
  • Foods as medicine
  • Calming methods
  • Exercise choices
  • Massage options
  • Counselling and Clinical Hypnosis 
  • Gut health

What you will need: A device with internet access. The link to the each day's webpage will be emailed to you over 5- 7 days. Each day you will get online access to a new selection of speakers. Invite your partner or family to view the day's online presentation/s with you. Ask questions of the speakers via the Youtube comments over the Summit.

A funding campaign will be run along side the Summit to support the entire program to remain as a free online resource for one year. Over 4 weeks you will be asked to assist in the crowd funding campaign to support free access for "long time" or "new" breast cancer survivors over the year.

Registration here will be for the Summit July 31 -  August 6 2017.

 PROJECT FUNDING: This is a privately funded project, your support is needed. Click here for more information

Find a local business /website owner who will sponsor a logo/link to the entire program for 12 months. Webpage viewers, breast cancer survivors and their family/carers, will be able to click on the logo and access the 35 presentations from leading health professionals when they need to (free to the viewer).  This is a new funding method which aims to bring support from the business community to valued members of their community- breast cancer survivors and their family/carers.

FAQs

What is a Summit?

Online Health Summits have become popular over the last few years as a means of increasing health knowledge to the person experiencing the health problem. Each day's program has guest speakers who have demonstrated leadership in their field of health or wellness: they speak about their work and the importance of current health and wellness solutions.The aim being to empower people to participate actively in their health outcomes.

The main difference here is the funding model- instead of individuals being asked to purchase the entire program - we are looking for local business webpage owners to sponsor access to this resource. for breast cancer survivors in their community.


Why is this event free?

This project wants to break down some of the barriers to health information for breast cancer survivors.

We recognise that finances can be hard hit after a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Contributions to support this private project will be welcomed.
