Survive and Thrive Symposium Inspires Patients, Survivors, and Caregivers.

A cancer diagnosis brings questions, a range of emotions, and a new world in which to operate. Understanding how to rise above these challenges and thrive is essential to fight cancer. That’s why the Texas Oncology Foundation is putting patients first through Survive and Thrive Symposiums and Webinars.

The Survive and Thrive Symposium brings together cancer patients, caregivers, and topical experts at a relaxed, one-day event. Lectures and workshops provide education on post-cancer treatment, nutrition, exercise, and overall wellness. Moreover, the event is an inspiring time of bonding for those sharing challenging circumstances. The inaugural symposium in Arlington in October 2016 attracted more than 100 attendees. This year, attendance more than doubled at the Dallas event.

In 2018, there will be seven symposiums throughout the state beginning on February 24 in Longview. Following is the confirmed symposium schedule through early November:
