Goin' Out for The Girls


Nancy Laliberte is a cancer survivor and Wausau artist. Tuesday, she and others will take part in the Goin' Out for The Girls event at the Women's Health Center at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. Nancy will share how staying positive helped move her to recovery, "I just knew I had to stay positive. I share what I went through in hopes that it will help someone else."

The event is aimed at women. Those who take part will rotate through 5 sessions aimed at creating awareness about breast health, preventions and  cancer survivorship. Participants will be able to tour the center and chat with medical experts. Hands-on training tools will be used to discover the correct way to do a self-exam.  The genetics of breast cancer will be discussed with a focus about online tools you can use to look at your risks for cancer. Laliberte will then talk about the power of staying positive through gratitude journals and how it influenced her recovery.
