Surviving & Thriving 2018

Cancer Treatment Centers of America® and Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta® invite you to attend our survivorship conference, Surviving and Thriving 2018!

Generously hosted by Georgia Power on Saturday, March 10th, this conference will provide those impacted by breast cancer the opportunity to connect with other survivors, learn more about breast cancer care and survivorship to live a happier and healthier life with a sense of community.

This is a FREE conference and a hot breakfast will be provided. Also, courtesy of CTCA, all attendees will be entered into a drawing for an Instant Pot, a Kindle, a smoothie blender, and a Sonosphear Bluetooth speaker. You will not want to miss out!


We want to answer your questions! At the end of our event we will have a panel of doctors to answer your questions. Have a myth you want to debunk or a question to ask? Fill out this survey and we will answer it during the panel!
