The information below is for those invited to speak at Friends After Diagnosis meetings.
Thank you for volunteering your time and expertise to Friends after Diagnosis! We are looking forward to hosting you.
When: 2:00 – 3:30 PM
Where: First Presbyterian Church
520 Royal Palm Boulevard
Vero Beach 32960
The meeting is in the Earnshaw Room, which is on the second floor of the two-story structure.
We are interested in hearing about new advancements, updates or resources in the community that will improve quality of life for survivors of breast and women’s cancers. You are welcome to be as specific or as broad in the presentation of your topic as you choose. Typically our experts present for 15 – 30 minutes, followed by a question/answer period. We usually have 3 – 15 survivors attend. Projection equipment (e.g., for PowerPoint presentations) is available. Hand-outs are welcome, including your business cards.
The meeting opens promptly at 2:00 and begins with community announcements. We are also prepared at the open of meetings to take time with a new survivor that may wish to share her/his story. Once these items are finished, we will introduce you. If possible, please provide Lin with some biographic information to facilitate this.
We ask our experts to be prepared to present standing at a lectern at the head of the table, which helps attendees to see and hear the presentation. Also, please be aware that the survivors are at different stages in their recovery, including newly diagnosed, in treatment, in full remission, and at end of life. HOPE is key to our meetings and recovery.
You are welcome to bring one or more guests. Our meetings are open to anyone affected by breast and women’s cancers, and are listed on our calendar page. Thank you again for your time, and please contact Lin if you have questions. On behalf of the Friends, we look forward to your presentation.
