Cancer Research Meeting - September 10th from 5:15-6:45pm
Hagan Room, Cornell Vet School

We won't meet in August, but we're planning a special meeting for September.
At this meeting, the presenters will be individuals who have had cancer. Several of us will describe cancer from the patient's experience and answer questions from the researchers.

These monthly meetings are a collaboration between the Cancer Resource Center and doctoral students involved in cancer research at Cornell. Research topics are presented in lay language and discussion is encouraged.

Light refreshments are provided. If you'd like a ride from CRC to Cornell,
call Bob at 277-0960.

Writing Group beginning on Thursdays at the
Cancer Resource Center

The group will meet every Thursday from Oct. 2 - Nov. 6 from 5:30-7:30pm at CRC.

With the aid of structure, prompts, reading aloud, and having fun, this group will gather with the shared experience of having cancer, and will create whatever comes out of the time shared together.



You may be someone who journals, is a published author, has never written, or who simply loves poetry -- the only requirement is feeling a pull to participate, and being willing to write and share.



We will write because our experiences take on shape and meaning when we put pen to paper, when we follow what is presented, and when we read them aloud to others who are listening.  This will not be a therapeutic group that writes, but rather a gathering to write and tell stories that may turn in to something performed.



The group leader will structure the time and exercises, and help participants begin to craft those pieces into performative work if they'd like.

The class will be lead by Kira Lallas, LCSW, who supports families who have a child with a life-threatening illness.  She earned a BFA in Theatre with a concentration in writing and performing solo autobiographical work.
