Survivorship Issues Following a Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant

This webinar will tackle it all—fatigue, GVHD, chemo brain, depression, stress, anxiety,
sleep issues, mood disorders, PTSD, mindfulness, nutrition, advocating for yourself and
more. We’ll cover how COVID-19 has affected cancer care. Bone marrow/stem cell
transplant survivorship clinics across the nation have worked hard to keep you safe. Our
top notch speakers will guide you on how to continue to thrive during a pandemic. We’ll
also hear from a survivor who is now one-year post-transplant. This webinar will be led
by Jennifer Gillette, our licensed staff social worker. There will be plenty of time for
questions.
