Sharing with the Beloved Foundation

On Friday, February 2, 2017, I had the honor of sharing work from my Creating Comics Project at the Beloved Foundation’s REACH Oncology Social Worker’s Symposium.  The mission of the Beloved Foundation is “to ease the burden of families who are struggling financially as a result of caring for a loved one with terminal cancer.” It was a terrific day learning from co-presenters on current research on fertility and sexuality for cancer patients by Dr. Mehdi Kebria and laws and regulations for work accommodations by Joseph Richardson. The day was organized by CEO Jennifer Talbert-Miller, the joyful person in the picture with me. It was terrific time to meet so many people from The CARE Project, Michelle’s Place, American Cancer Society, Riverside, The Cancer Legal Resource Center, and more. I learned so much about the people and organizations supporting people living with cancer, their families, and each other. It was an inspiring day. They work together in the toughest moments of life to make a difference in how we care for each other.
