Pat McRee, author of “Support to Go, the Unbook for the Journey Through Breast Cancer” and co-author with Amber McRee Turner of “Support to Go, the Unbook for Men and Women with Cancer,” is featured speaker of April’s meeting of the Cancer Awareness Support Group.
McRee will lead a “Laughter After Cancer” workshop at the monthly meeting on Monday, April 14 at 5:30 p.m. in the Baptist-Tipton Hospital community conference room.
As a 20-year breast cancer survivor, McRee believes that laughter has been a key element of good health. She says, "I'm convinced that a good surgeon, a fine oncologist delivering cutting edge chemo and gathering with likeminded survivors who were willing to get past the fear to make fun of themselves has made all the difference for me."
Ms. McRee has spoken to groups across the country spreading her message that joy after a cancer diagnosis is not only possible but a sure thing with a little help from your friends.
This three-time survivor is program director for the Flying Colors Cancer Network supported by the Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation.
The evening of support is open to all and will be an up-on-your-feet, playful evening with some singing, some laughter therapy and a time to share your own stories, the sad and the glad.
Attendees will receive a free “Support to Go Unbook!"
