Let’s Talk: Candid Cancer Conversations

October is Breast Cancer Month.  Join author and four-time survivor of breast cancer, Sherry B. Williams, for a candid conversation about myths and truths about cancer treatments and life after. Also, why are so many African-American women, despite breakthroughs in treatment, diagnosed in the late stages?
For all those touched by a cancer diagnosis: current patients, survivors, care- givers, family and friends. Sherry’s little book, When Cancer Calls is short, faith-based, lighthearted and filled with hope. More information on Sherry at www.whencancercalls.info
