You Have “Survived” Cancer….NOW WHAT?

When you have “survived” cancer once and come out on the other side, you are vigilant about protecting your
health! This month at the Young Cancer Survivors event we will have a counselor speak about the anxiety that can
come with being a cancer “survivor”. Anxiety for the future, fear of recurrence, these are all real concerns that
someone who has lived with cancer faces on a daily basis.

The Beyond Pink TEAM is hosting its next “Meet, Mingle and Learn” event Tuesday, January 21 from 4:30-7p.m
at the Cedar Valley Unitarian Universalists building, 3912 Cedar Heights Drive, Cedar Falls. Jake Schaefer,
LMHC is a counselor at Cedar Falls Counseling Associates and cancer survivor. He will share his story and lead
discussion among the women living with cancer who attend.
This FREE event is open to all young women living with ANY cancer diagnosis. Activities are planned from 4:30
to 7 p.m., but participants can come and go as their schedules allow. There will be refreshments available courtesy
of Panera Bread Bakery- Café.
The schedule for the evening is:
4:30–5:00 pm Refreshments and table discussions begin
5:00–6:00 pm Table Discussions
6:00–6:45 pm Jake Schaefer, Counselor – “I Survived Cancer! Now What?”
6:45-7:00 pm Wrap up and final questions
