A breast cancer diagnosis and its treatments can take a toll on your intimate relationships and sexual function.  

Join us for a free one-hour webinar, presented by our Young Women’s Initiative, to hear from other women like you and from our expert, Anne Katz, RN, PhD, a clinical nurse specialist and sexuality counselor. We will discuss the latest research looking into easing side effects that can impact sexual arousal, comfort and pleasure, and share strategies for improving communication with your partner and health care providers to get the support you need.

We will take questions during the last 10 minutes of the program via phone and online chat.
