Description

A Recipe for Lemonade

How do you make lemonade when you've been handed a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer? Susan G. Komen LA County Affiliate looked for some answers for you at the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Cancer Center where Dr. Arash Asher and his collegues Jeffrey Wertheimer and Bronwen Jones are involved in research to help metastatic breast cancer patients explore the concept of a meaning-centered life during potentially difficult and challenging times.

The GRACE Rearch Study, Growing Resiliency and Courage (GRACE) with Cancer, suggests that "the very things that threaten our lives also may strengthen the life within us."

In addition, Dr. Stephen Freeland and researchers within the Department of Integrated Research in Cancer and Life styles will shed light on the Ketogenic Diet and how it can serve the breast cancer patient.

Free for those living with Metastatic Breast Cancer & one guest. Refreshments and Parking provided
