Hear what attendees have had to say after attending previous Chapter 2 Workshops:

It was empowering to see and interact with so many survivors. Very practical sessions and information presented throughout the day.
This was my first workshop. I loved it and I hope to come back next year and also take advantage of the various resources Roswell has such as acupuncture and yoga and meditation. It was nice connecting with other people who went through cancer.
It is a great retreat day away from everyday stresses.
I didn’t want to attend but was bullied into it by my family. I didn’t want to 'live the cancer lifestyle.' I want to stay away from all things cancer and get on with living. However I’m glad I went, the speakers and staff were excellent, caring and helpful. It was good to see their dedication to us outside of the consulting room and I realized just how much I didn’t know just by being around such a mixed group of survivors. I was particularly struck by seeing so many young people with survivor tags. I’ll definitely sign up for my dose of reality next year. Thank you.
