On November 4, 2010 for the sixth year, the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Greater Delaware Valley Division had an evening conference. The conference was designed to address the personal and medical issues facing adults, and children with blood cancers and their caregivers.
Through a series of presentations, personalized one-to-one sessions and the opportunity to network and gain support from other survivors, the conference serves to educate patients and their families about the medical, psychosocial and survivorship issues they may face. This conference was designed for people who are survivors of blood cancer or who have undergone bone marrow or stem cell transplant (BMSCT), their families, friends and caregivers.
