A cancer diagnosis changes everything. Self-image, body image, intimacy, sex, and sexual function are often upended from diagnosis through treatment — and well into survivorship. Who am I now? What feels good now? What do I want? What resources, products, and people can help? How can I advocate for myself as a sexual being after cancer?

Join mother-daughter duo, Leslie (RN, ARNP) and Gretchen, for this informative workshop on cancer and sexuality. If you have, have had, have a partner with, or care for patients with cancer, this class is for you. Pull up a chair, bring your questions, and let’s talk about sex and cancer.

Leslie has over 35 years of nursing, family practice, and nurse coaching experience. She works with individuals, community groups, and professional organizations both in-person and virtually. Leslie has worked in the field of Cancer Survivorship since 2012. She provides education to support and encourage cancer survivors’ knowledge and self-advocacy.

Gretchen is an educator, strength coach, athlete, and graduate student in the field of mental health counseling. Throughout their decade of experience in sex education and personal/group training, Gretchen has dedicated herself to meeting people where they are at the confluence of physical, sexual, and emotional wellness. Gretchen strives to approach her work through a creative, multi-disciplinary, light-hearted, and person-centered lens.
