Understanding Female Cancers: Vaginal Cancer

Vaginal cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in the vagina.

Most vaginal cancers do not start in the vagina but have instead spread from another site in the body to the vagina.

In its early stages, treatment of vaginal cancer has a high success rate.

Join us for this webinar, where our expert speakers discuss its symptoms, risk factors and the role of reconstructive surgery for treatment of this disease.

Gentle Yoga

Gentle Yoga strengthens the immune system and softens some of the effects of cancer treatment. It also helps to enhance our emotional and psychological wellbeing by releasing tension, anxiety, and creating “space” – physically and emotionally. Come join us for an hour of gentle yin and hatha yoga and learn simple poses and breathing exercises that you can do at home to help with your recovery. We may also include some slow and gentle vinyasa flow, as an option for some of us.

Cancer Genetics and Prevention Strategies

Is the risk of cancer higher in some people due to their genetics? For people with a family history of cancers, their predisposition of getting cancer may be higher than others. For that matter, understanding cancer genetics and the management of these risks may help in the prevention of mortality from cancer.

Understanding cancer genetics had also enabled greater precision in the way cancer is treated. Doctors are able to have a deeper understanding of tumour behaviours and drug responses.

Join the webinar to learn more about cancer genetics and its role in cancer treatments and risk reduction in women’s cancers.
