Survivorship Conference

Kevin and I attended the Working Together: Building a Bridge to Survivorship conference today, sponsored by Johns Hopkins. My oncologist had told me about it because the keynote speaker was Dr. Ann Partridge, who he had consulted with regarding my treatment, as she is a lead expert in treating young women with breast cancer.

It's been cold and rainy and gross all day, and we had to get up way too early on a Saturday morning, but it was a good conference. We got to meet a few new people, learned some things, heard from various specialists about different aspects of care from the time of diagnosis until years into survivorship. I even sucked up my shyness and went up to speak with Dr. Partridge after her address to say hello and thank her for her work.

I spent the rest of the afternoon working on FSA reimbursements and paying bills. We'll hit our out of pocket maximum (for me, at least) with the next chemo bill; we're actually pretty close already. Yippee.
