This is not your typical “Support Group!”
Cancer Tamer’s Empowerment Series is a unique program created by a breast cancer patient for breast cancer patients. Each week is specifically structured to address the special needs of breast cancer patients, taking into account the unique aspects of treatment, finances, and the emotional and mental health of women and men diagnosed with with this disease.
Empowerment Series is structured to address one aspect of life with breast cancer each week, using various modalities including experiential learning to view the specific challenges you’ll face and how to prepare for them, to allow you to create the best possible outcome for yourself and your family that you can grow in strength and self-esteem.
Empowerment Series is 9-week program, 1-time a week for 1.5 – 2 hours. Below are a few of the topics covered:
- Your outlook on breast cancer and life to create a NEW outlook
- Writing to heal
- Financial support & resources
- Emotional Health
- Creative Movement
- Eating to Live & Recover
- Reclaiming your sensual divinity
- Creating & Maintaining your Posse
- Legal Issues
- And much more…
We welcome women (and men) to our workshops regardless of whether they were recently diagnosed; have been living with breast cancer for a while; are following the standard treatment; or are dealing with breast cancer holistically.
Each Empowerment Series workshop builds on the one before it. A different topic is addressed each week. Our focus is on empowering women (and men) to embrace their inner power and create the life they wish to live. Yes, loved ones registered for the workshop are welcomed. Empowerment Assignments will be provided during each week.
Please review our schedule for the next course. If you wish to bring our Empowerment Series to your organization, please contact us.
*Note: Though our Empowerment Series will address mental health issues, this is not your typical “Support Group” where individuals talk about their daily lives and struggles with breast cancer. If you are seeking a “Support Group,” please check with your nurse navigator or treatment hospital.
About our presenter: Dr. Charley Ferrer
Dr. Charley Ferrer is a world-renowned Empowerment Speaker and award-winning author. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 and thyroid cancer in 2017. Frustrated with the lack of information and treatment options provided to cancer patients, Dr. Charley established the Cancer Tamer Foundation which focuses on education and empowerment for women (and men) diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2019, she wrote the play, Breast Cancer Diaries which premiered to a sold out crowd on Staten Island & Manhattan along with two documentary files: Messages of Hope and Faces of Breast Cancer. Her philosophy on breast cancer is realizing that cancer is not an “outside force” invading but an “inside force” residing. “It’s in our blood, our breasts, our DNA. In our attempts to destroy it, we are inadvertently destroying ourselves. Instead we should learn how to ‘tame’ cancer.” she states and teaches others to do just that through her various workshops, television show, and upcoming CELEBRATE LIFE Conference coming 2020. Dr. Charley’s revolutionary new way of thinking about cancer is turning heads, creating controversy, and reminding women and men that we should not be at war with our body!
