      Friends of Mel Foundation presents an annual conference designed to empower people touched by cancer - The Art of Living - Life Beyond Cancer.

      We are presenting our 4th Annual Conference being held on October 18, 2014, at Marriott Hotel, Quincy, Massachusetts.

      Keynote Speakers:

      Dan Shapiro, Ph.D. Garner James Kline Professor of Humanities in Medicine and the Chair of the Department of Humanities at Penn State College of Medicine.

      A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to Chemotherapy In this sometimes moving, sometimes laugh-out-loud adventure through one man’s experience with multiple relapses, Dr. Dan Shapiro invites us to consider how we approach our medical teams, how we interact with other patients and our guiding priorities.
      Hester Hill Schnipper, LICSW, BCD, OSW-C Chief of Oncology Social Work at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and adjunct professor at Simmons College of Social Work

      Living Well After Cancer Many people experience significant physical and emotional challenges after completing treatment for cancer. Common themes and suggested strategies will be addressed to craft a considered and joyful life.
