Friends of Mel Conference Logo

The 5th annual Friends of Mel conference is designed to help survivors and their caregivers navigate the healing process during a full day of professionally led workshops and seminars. This years keynote speakers include Matthew J. Loscalzo, LCSW from City of Hope and Susan Leigh, BSN, RN a Cancer Survivorship Consultant and Founding Member of the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship.

Join us for a breakout session led by Joanna Morales, Esq. from Triage Cancer on Navigating Employment Issues! We know that a cancer diagnosis can bring up questions on how to navigate work and cancer, Triage Cancer will guide you through strategies, resources, and employment laws, to help you make decisions on how to balance work and cancer.

NEW to this year! Special seminars for young adults on topics like body image, self-esteem, and relationships along with the opportunity to build connections as a young adult in Boston!

Attendees from last year’s conference said, “the conference was wonderful! The only issue I had was that there were so many great sessions. I couldn’t decide which one to attend!”

Register by November 1st! For more information, call (781) 878- 8639 or email info@friendsofmel.org. Parking at the hotel is complimentary.
