BENEFITING: Women Survivors Alliance
EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2015
Cancer doesn't end when treatment does and it draws a definitive line in the sand of life. Hearing the words, “You have cancer,” changes a person, and all the lives connected to theirs, forever.
The Women Survivors Alliance is on a mission: to establish a network where women affected by cancer can find their voice, improve their quality of life, and embrace their 2nd Act. We EMPOWER, EDUCATE and CONNECT women whose lives have been touched by cancer.
We help them re-enter their lives and navigate the muddy waters of survivorship by addressing the long-term and life limiting effects of the illness and its treatments – including physical, psychosocial, relationship and financial challenges.
SURVIVORville, our annual event in Nashville, TN, helps us achieve our mission in a BIG way. We bring together women survivors of ALL ages, ALL stages and ALL cancers. We provide them with life applications. We give them opportunities to share and learn.
A 2013 attendee told us, “I learned more about life after cancer in 2 1/2 days than in my 7 years as a survivor!”
A 2014 SURVIVORville attendee said it best, ”I am completely hopeful again!”
But here's the tough part: Financial hardships as a result of treatment costs prevent many women from joining sister survivors in reclaiming their lives.
You can help us achieve our mission. Please click on the link below and help a survivor re-enter life after her cancer diagnosis. You can sponsor another woman to this life-changing event!
And 100% of every tax deductible donation will bring another woman to this life-changing event.
Cancer might have drawn a line in the sand of their lives, but with your help, SURVIVORville will give their redefined lives new meaning!
“Thank you for finally giving me a place where I feel a sense of belonging.”
