Buffalo educational program will focus on childhood blood cancer

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which provides information and support for patients battling leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, will offer a free educational program next week titled “Coping with Childhood Blood Cancer – Beyond Diagnosis and Finding a New Normal.”

The program, which will include a complimentary dinner, will run from 5:15 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in downtown Buffalo, and focus on the nuts and bolts of cancer treatment, pediatric medical traumatic stress and resilience, family dynamics, educational needs and social networks.

A panel which will discuss childhood blood cancer will include Dr. Martin Brecher, chief of pediatric hematology/oncology at Women & Children’s Hospital, and Waldemar J. Kaminski, chair of pediatrics at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Preregistration is required up until Tuesday. For more information or to register, email mary.walls@lls.org or call 249-3004.
