Facing Cancer: The Male Perspective

Facing a cancer diagnosis as a man is stressful, and may feel isolating even if you have a good support system of family and friends. 

Join the Henry Ford Cancer Institute for a 3-part series for men who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis. You will learn how to cope with feelings and effects of cancer treatment you may be experiencing, and connect with other men on a similar journey. Topics include: 

  • Session 1: Exploring ways to thrive in the face of a cancer diagnosis by improving or developing self-management skills specific to cancer.  
  • Session 2: Examine the ripple effect of cancer symptoms in your personal and professional life and learn how to reduce their impact through the power of the mind and communication strategies.
  • Session 3: Evaluating potential barriers to physical health and sexual intimacy as cancer patients, and strategies for managing them, along with changes in prognosis.

Sessions will be led by Charles Laymond, Madonna University Social Work Intern. Register for one or all. There is no cost to attend.
