This is not your typical Support Group. Cancer Tamer Growth & Wellness Support Groups are specifically structured to address the special needs of breast cancer patients, the various aspects of treatment and surgeries. We’ll provide information on resources and ways to keep yourself motivated. Each weekly session will focus on a specific topic helping participants GROW in strength and self-esteem.
Each Cancer Tamer Growth & Wellness Support Group runs for 9-weeks. Below are a few of the topics covered:
- Your outlook on cancer and life
- Writing to heal
- Financial support & resources
- Emotional Health
- Creative Nutrition
- Where to look for answers
- Reclaiming your sensual divinity
- And much more…
We welcome women who are undergoing treatment, are taking medication and also welcome women who are NOT taking medication. These Growth & Wellness Support Groups are for anyone interested in healing, finding resources, addressing immediate concerns and much more. A course curriculum will be provided at the first session.
Each Cancer Tamer Growth & Wellness Support Groups is as different and diverse as its participants. We are focused on helping women grow and address personal concerns. To encourage and enhance confidentiality, each Group is closed to new member after week one.
Please review our schedule for the next upcoming group or sign-up for our Newsletter to obtain dates/times and locations.
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!
