The Pierce County Cancer Survivorship Conference is an annual event to support and celebrate the community of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers in the South Sound. Held every August on the beautiful University of Puget Sound campus, this event is presented by multiple community organizations and cancer care advocates. Thanks to the generous sponsors and other supporters, this conference is free to all attendees!

Breakout Sessions

Breakout Sessions

We work hard year-round to book relevant and interesting topics and speakers for the Conference. Your day will begin with a buffet style breakfast, followed by two breakout sessions of your choosing. Next you will enjoy a buffet lunch before participating in the the final two breakout sessions of the day. Massage therapists and a henna artist are on hand for some extra relaxation before the third and final breakout session of the day.
