Schreiner Chautauqua lecture addresses cancer experience, options

The first of Schreiner University’s 2009 Robert P. Hallman Chautauqua Lecture Series will be Monday, Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. in the Cailloux Campus Activity Center Theater. Dr. Claudia Sullivan, Schreiner professor of theatre and communication, will speak on “The Cancer of Hope: Innovations in Breast Cancer Diagnosis, Research, Treatment, Life after the Disease.”

“Breast Cancer changes your life. It changes everything about your life,” Dr. Sullivan said, “but because of new innovations in diagnoses and treatment, the change can actually bring on a better life.” Dr. Sullivan was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago. Since then, she has done significant research in the fields of early diagnosis, treatment options and the importance of support and attitude related to a cancer diagnosis. Although she is not a medical professional, her story will touch anyone who has cancer, has had cancer or knows someone with cancer.

All Chautauqua events are free and open to the public, and are videotaped for later broadcast on Channel 2 Kerrville, a public service program funded in part by a grant from Humanities Texas.
