April Program: Sexuality and Intimacy with Tamara Williams-Reding
April 22, 2015
6 - 8 p.m.

"Cancer seems to take so much from us - energy, time, emotional well-being, comfort in our appearance. Does it have to rob of us the pleasure of sexuality as well? Self sexual connectedness? Intimacy with our partner? Join Tamara Williams-Reding, Licensed Professional Counselor, Cancer Survivor and Reclaimer of the Orgasm for an open and sometimes humorous look at cancer and sexuality. Learn what you can do to protect your libido during treatment, jump start libido as you move into survivorship and how to recognize the many ways cancer can affect relationship intimacy. Prepare for a frank, open and often funny discussion as we look at the ways to keep cancer from negatively intruding into our sexuality and relationships!" -Tamara Williams-Reding, LPC

YWBCP is partnering with the Heights community center to offer a weekly exercise program for all young adults with cancer. The class is held each week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Dawn Brown, a certified personal trainer leads the program. Registration is required. Register at 314-747-7156 or ywbcp@wudosis.wustl.edu. An increasing amount of data demonstrates the benefits of regular activity and exercise among people diagnosed with cancer. Maintaining a regular exercise routine is tough. This group will provide you with instruction and support to return to or start exercising on a regular basis.
