The session will be held on December 3rd, 2019 in the Cancer Education Center located in the lobby level of the Gonda Building from noon to 1pm CT. The session will not be recorded due to patient confidentiality in the presentation room itself.

Will there be any written material regarding this session on December 3. I am very interested in brain fog regarding cancer related illnesses. I am a 6year cancer survivor. Thankyou


Our team will be posting a follow-up article based on the content shared during tomorrow's session. In the meantime, both and have information on Chemo Brain including signs, symptoms, questions to ask your doctor, and more.


I attended the Cancer-Related Brain Fog session yesterday, very interesting. The most important thing I walked away with is that Cancer Fog is a real thing and not something I imagine. Thank you Laurie
