August 9 - Casey Waddle, MSN, FNP-C: “Living After You’ve Survived” Casey Waddle is a breast cancer survivor and a nurse practitioner with the Mary Ellen Locher Breast Center. As a four year survivor, Casey understands the feeling of being “kicked out of the nest” after completion of active treatment. Where do we go from here? What do we need to keep an eye out for? How can we take responsibility for monitoring our own health as the follow up appointments get further and further apart? Casey will talk about ongoing care plans for survivors, including “not forgetting the rest of your body”.
