Life After Loss Chapter
event Jan 29, 2024 / 01:00PM - 02:00PM EST

Event Description

This meeting is part of HealthTree's Life After Loss group, a group for those who have lost a loved one to blood cancer.

Life is all about living with change. Changes in our lives occur daily. Some changes are small and insignificant while others are monumental and can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety. We are used to living with things that are familiar to us, and the loss of a loved one substantially changes our familiarity with life. In this webinar, as part of our Life After Loss group, we will come together to discuss how to once again feel safe and nurtured so you can thrive through change. This group meeting will be led by Cheryl Petruk, former blood cancer caregiver and a mental health expert.
