Surviving: A Colon Cancer Journey

April 26 at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Colon Cancer Journey at Gilda's

A unique talk about successful colon cancer recovery.

Like many cancer patients, Beverly Battaglia was blindsided when told she had colon cancer. Beverly discusses how she dealt with the diagnosis, shares a few of the stumbling blocks encountered and explains how each small triumph on her cancer recovery journey was viewed as an achievement. Her oncologist and co-author, Dr. Amy Law, reviews colon cancer screening, symptoms, recommendations and treatment goals, and shares her views on providing the best care for each of her recovering patients.

Beverly Battaglia, Ph.D. is a colon cancer survivor and author of Surviving: A Colon Cancer Diary and Changing Lanes: Couples Redefining Retirement. She is a retired social psychologist, consultant and university instructor.

Amy Law, M.D. is a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine and Medical Oncology and is associated with Desert Hematology – Oncology Medical Group, Inc. in Rancho Mirage.

This event is open to the public.
