BTCF Board Member and cancer survivor Amy Hart will be presenting the Big C New Me program, sharing her personal cancer journey and the motivation that went into creating the Big C New Me program. She will be joined by her husband Eric Hart (BTCF Advisory Board member and co-director of the Big C New Me program), who was her caregiver for many years. He focuses on the caregiver perspective.
Big C New Me is a program serving cancer survivors and caregivers. We help women, men, and teens deal with the challenges of living with -and overcoming the side effects of- cancer and treatment by providing confidence-building, educational, and support resources.
- Depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, guilt, grief and low self-esteem are among some of challenges that plague cancer survivors. According to the American Psychological Association, 20 to 60 percent of cancer patients have symptoms of depression.
- Amy and Eric will share a video and discuss their popular Power Crew event that goes all over the country treating cancer survivors to a day of pampering and image-boosting.
- This presentation is one hour including a Q&A.
