Dear all,

One of the true joys in my life is a friendship I have with a marvelous woman, Kathryn Gail Bailey, at the Stanford Cancer Center. Kathryn (she is one of the organizers) recently, called my attention, to a wonderful event to be held August 16th at the Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto, California. I think it will be a marvelous event and a good way for you to be informed about many of Stanford's classes for breast cancer survivors.

I strongly encourage anyone who is in the area to come. I am going to try my best to make it and would love to say hi. I am 6'3" with poor posture, a full white beard and a good heart and would be delighted to say hello. Please just come over.

All the details for registration etc. are in this link..check in is at 10 a.m. and the event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 


From the above link


 Connect. Learn. Share. Grow.

Learn how community organizations and Stanford services canhelp you live a healthy life, and research health topics with Stanfordhealth librarians. Ask the Experts about common survivorship

issues: nutrition, changes in energy, living with uncertainty and cancer in the family. 

Enjoy live music, FREE 15 minute reiki and chair massage, yoga, a kid’s corner with face painting, lunch,and much more.


What I particularly like about Stanford's efforts in events like this is that there is no requirement that you be a Stanford patient. It is open to all and it is free. Just an effort on their part to help women with/or have had breast cancer,  live a bit better.

with my love to all,

Steve

p.s. this post is about the event, not my friend Kathryn. But I wanted to add a few more letters after her name..and that is BH...as in Beautiful Heart. If anyone would like to meet Kathryn I would be honored to introduce you to her. She is truly a remarkable lady and I am delighted that we are friends.

Kathryn Gail Bailey, RN, OCN, MSN, MBA, CNML

Administrative Director – Cancer Care Programs – Stanford Hospital and Clinics

I spoke to Kathryn Gail Bailey this afternoon and she told me they she and her colleagues have been working "night and day" on this event and I think it will be really special.

Dr. George Sledge who is one of the country's leading TNBC experts and is head of oncology at Stanford will be speaking on Living with and Beyond Breast Cancer. Dr. Sledge sits on TNBC Foundation's Medical Advisory Board and he is a marvelous oncologist and a very fine man.

I should be there around 10 a.m. and would love to say hi to everyone. There is a map in the link.

warmly,

Steve

p.s. sorry with my cut and pasting the program order is a bit skewed.
