From Diagnosis to Treatment…Then WHAT??

From Diagnosis to Survivor: Then What?

The “Splash of Color” meeting is Thursday, August 8 from 5-7 pm at the Waterloo Public Library, 415 Commercial Street, Waterloo.

This FREE event is open to all women of color living with breast cancer.  Activities are planned from 5 to 7 p.m., but participants can come and go as their schedules allows. Transportation and/or childcare available if  pre-arranged by August 1 by calling 319-493-8857.

Organizer Cathy Ketton will be sharing her story of personal illness. Her goal with her presentation “From Diagnosis to Survivor: Then What?” is to motivate the ladies to move beyond themselves to help others.  “Only a few people knew I have been ill.” Ketton said. “I want to tell my story, my struggle and then share what I plan to do to help others to share their story.”  Ketton says  it is time to reach out and help others. She would like to see the women of Splash of Color get involved in our community and become breast cancer advocates.
