Community Dialogues

Please join us for Community Dialogues, a forum where WCRC clients, volunteers, staff, and community members come together to explore topics of common interest.

Community Dialogues vary in format, from panels of presenters to single presenters, from lecture to interactive.

Past Community Dialogue topics have included stress reduction, medical cannabis, younger women and cancer, exercise and cancer, a community remembrance ritual, and complementary therapies.

All Community Dialogues are free of charge!

WCRC Community Dialogue: How to Explain Cancer to a Child

Friday, March 30, 2018, 11 AM to 1 PM

A light breakfast will be served at 10:30 AM.

Join Children’s book Author, Jessica Sliwerski, as she reads from her book, “Cancer Hates Kisses”. There will be a thoughtful discussion on a sensitive topic that many people of both younger and older children struggle with during their Cancer journey.

Jessica Sliwerski will lead the community dialogue on how to explain cancer to our children. There will be an art activity offered in both Spanish and English for the children after the book reading.

Parents/Grand-parents/Aunts, Uncles and Legal Guardians are encouraged to bring their children to this community dialogue.
