Have you or a loved one been newly diagnosed with breast cancer? Are you seeking answers but don’t know where to turn? Do you feel like you’re on the edge of a cliff and no one hears your screams? Does it feel like you’re on a runaway train running from one doctor’s appointment or test to another?
Join Dr. Charley Ferrer, a breast cancer patient herself, as she helps you put the brakes on the insanity and navigate the challenges you’ll face as you cope with breast cancer and daily living. This workshop is not about treatment options (that’s for your physician to address), it’s about navigating and living through the struggles and challenges of breast cancer. We’ll provide information on:
- How to break the news to family, friends and your employer
- Questions to ask your physician before surgery
- How to prepare yourself and your home for surgery and ongoing treatment
- What resources are available to cancer patients & their families
- Ways to handle financial challenges
- Tricks to keep your spirits high
- And much more…

Breast cancer brings with it many twists and turns. Discover how to navigate its crossroad from someone who’s been in the trenches and made it through. Dr. Charley breaks through the silence and discusses what you SHOULD know but AREN’T told about breast cancer.
Life should never be merely about surviving; it should be about thriving despite your diagnosis because you shouldn’t be at war with your body!
A little about our presenter:
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!
