Stupid Cancer’s newest program is Discussion Series: a month-long deep dive into crucial AYA topics with weekly sessions. The first topic is Mental Health After Treatment. This series is limited to survivors and patients only.

Each ninety-minute online workshop focuses on a different aspect of the overall topic, featuring a presentation and small group discussions. Attendees are encouraged to participate in all four sessions but are not required to do so. Attendance at each session will be capped at 25 participants, with priority to those who register for all four weeks.

Discussion One: “Post-Treatment Blues” with Phoenix Muhammad, LMFT

You might expect to be overjoyed after you ring the bell, but for many patients, the most difficult time in their cancer journey comes after treatment. The transition back to “normal” life can be very disorienting. What does normal even mean after cancer? What side effects will linger? Are you fatigued or depressed? How do you handle pressure from family and friends to “move on already”? This intimate discussion will provide a safe space for you to explore this confusing time with other adolescent and young adult cancer patients and survivors.
