Here at Lacuna Loft, we are all about the behind the scenes, nitty-gritty of running an organization. When I started Lacuna Loft, I relied on some very communicative and helpful small business owners to help guide me…along with a load of library books! In the Behind the Scenes series we’ll talk about the various stages of the development of Lacuna Loft and some of the lessons we’ve learned along the way. You’ll hear often from me, the Founder and CEO of Lacuna Loft, as well as from our Design Guru, board members, contributors, and more!
Today we’ll let you know where you can meet Lacuna Loft in person this year!
If you’ve missed other posts in our Behind the Scenes series, check out a day in the life of Lacuna Loft’s founder, Lacuna Loft’s First Days, an FAQ with our founder (me!), and Lacuna Loft’s Board of Directors.
Every year, Lacuna Loft travels to a number of conferences and events to interface with young adult cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers, as well as the healthcare providers who care for these young adults. This year we are traveling to several (including one this weekend!) so we thought we’d let you know where you might be able to meet a member of the Lacuna Loft team in person!
March 10 – 11, 2017 – Young Survival Coalition Summit in Oakland, CA. This conference is specific to young breast cancer survivors and their caregivers and this year, it is right in our backyard! Oakland, CA is where Lacuna Loft’s office is! If you’re a breast cancer survivor, this conference is a fabulous opportunity to meet other survivor sisters and to learn about some great resources while you’re at it.
April 27 – 29, 2017 – Stupid Cancer’s CancerCon in Denver, CO. I am on the Steering Committee for this event again this year and it is not to be missed. If you are looking to meet a bunch of other young adult cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers of every diagnosis under the sun, CancerCon is the place to go!
May 4 – 6, 2017 – Oncology Nursing Society’s Annual Conference in Denver, CO. The ONS Congress is a new event for Lacuna Loft and I am really looking forward to it. My mother was a member of the Oncology Nursing Society for a number of years and I’m anxious to meet as many of the wonderful and dedicated oncology nurses as possible.
June 2 – 6, 2017 – American Society of Clinical Oncology’s Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL. ASCO is a new event for the Lacuna Loft team this year as well. We have a booth space in the Patient Advocate area and are ready to meet and greet with as many healthcare providers as possible!
There are a few other events that we may attend this year but nothing else is set in stone. Will you be at any of these conferences? If so, one of our team would love to meet you!
Let us know if there is something in particular that you’d like shown as part of our Behind the Scenes series!
