Cancer in Our Lives

Join us at “Cancer in Our Lives” a two-day event in San Francisco October 13th and 14th, 2006. See attached event flyer.

We know that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people are at greater risk for some cancers and less likely to access necessary and appropriate diagnostic and treatment resources.

In this two day event we will put a personal face on cancer in our communities, confront our unique obstacles to care, look at the promising science emerging to prevent some cancers and talk with each other about what strategic steps are needed to move forward in this fight.
