The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center will host CancerCare’s Ninth Annual Survivorship Series: Living With, Through and Beyond Cancer. The first installment of the webcast series, Chemobrain: The Impact of Cancer Treatments on Memory, Thinking and Attention, will be held on Tuesday, May 3 from Noon – 1 p.m.
This is one of four CancerCare survivorship sessions where cancer patients, survivors and caregivers can listen in to topical cancer-related issues, then participate in a question and answer session by a panel of MD Anderson doctors, nurses and staff.

The free sessions are open to all caregivers, patients and survivors, regardless of where they were treated. For more information and to reserve a place, please call (281)-566-1800. A free lunch will be provided for the first 15 attendees.
