This month’s telephone educational and support program will focus on survivor’s guilt, the anxiety you may feel when a peer passes away as well as how to handle well-intended positivity if you are experiencing negative feelings and despair. Shirley Otis-Green, MSW, MA, ACSW, LCSW, OSW-CE, FNAP, FAOSW of Collaborative Caring will break it down for us. Two time bone marrow transplant recipient and survivor Bridget Casey will share her personal experience and some valuable lessons learned along the way. The nbmtLINK’s licensed staff social worker, Jennifer Gillette, will facilitate the program. There will also be plenty of time for live questions.

This FREE program is intended to provide psychosocial and emotional support along with health information from national experts regarding critical topics surrounding cancer and treatments. This program is recorded and available on our website one week after airing live. (www.nbmtlink.org)
