A couple of months ago, I was honored to be invited to be a guest participant during this year’s Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fall Conference to be held Saturday, September 27th in Philadelphia. I have been asked to participate in a couple of other conferences on occasion, but so far I’ve declined for various reasons. This time I said yes. I agreed to be part of a panel discussing a topic near and dear to my heart – blogging. How could I say no to that?
I am stepping out of my comfort zone (from behind my keyboard) because I so passionately believe in the power of sharing our stories through blogging or any other venue for that matter. If I can encourage others to share/blog about their breast cancer experiences and thus reap some of the same benefits that I have garnered from blogging, count me in. Plus, this conference has a mets track included on this year’s agenda, and this is important to me as well. Click on the image below to learn more about this year’s conference. The hashtag for updates about the event on social media is #LBBCconf.
So, it’s off to Philadelphia for me this weekend.
If you’re in the area, maybe I’ll see you there.
Wish me luck!
And of course I’ll let you know how things go.
Have you attended any cancer conferences?
If so, what was your experience like and would you recommend that others attend one?
