Cancer survivors, their families, caregivers and friends will come together Saturday, March 22 for support.  The 2014 Essentia Health Cancer Survivors Conference offers workshops and valuable information.

Keynote speaker Dr. Wendy Harpham will share her story from running a successful solo practice to her own diagnosis with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.  In remission now, Dr. Harpham focuses on writing to educate and inspire patients.

Other renowned medical professionals will also be on hand including Dr. Anne Normand, an orthopedic oncology surgeon at Essentia Health. She'll focus on detoxifying cancer and its treatment at one of three breakout sessions.

Essentia Health neuropsychologist Dr. Michael Sharland will discuss chemo-brain and chemo-fog.  There will also be someone on hand to answer cancer-related legal questions.

Conference attendees will also get valuable information at the Cancer Exhibit.  Booths will feature clinical trial information, skin renewal information, genetic counseling, radiation oncology and cyberknife among many other topics.
