Coping with a Gynecologic Cancer Diagnosis (Part I)
A gynecologic cancer diagnosis can elicit emotional, psychosocial and practical concerns. Being able to seek support, connect with others and feel comfortable with your medical team are important aspects of a gynecologic cancer journey. This workshop will cover topics ranging from initial thoughts and emotions when first diagnosed, to forming a health care team and self-care.

Intimacy and Sexuality During & After Gynecologic Cancer Treatment (Part II)
The physical impact of gynecologic cancer and treatments can affect how you relate to a romantic partner.

Sharing your feelings openly and honestly is an important first step in ensuring good communication with your partner, which will allow you both to understand and work through any issues together.
