NspireDbyNicolle presents it’s 2nd Annual Cancer Conference
On Saturday, September 23rd at the Ramada Inn in Newark, Delaware, NspireDbyNicolle presented its 2nd Annual KaleidoscopeDE Cancer Conference – Empowering Survivors ~ Mind, Body & Spirit.
It was a beautiful Saturday and the KaleidoscopeDE Cancer conference was attended by more than 50 women, some cancer thrivers others were caregivers and supporters.
The day began with registration and a light breakfast with vendor exhibits and information. Each attendee received several Tote Bags donated by Tanger Outlets which contained informational sheets and other goodies including a full box of Organic Honey from Queen Honey and Hemp Oil Samples from Kannaway.
After a brief introduction by myself and a welcome from Nicolle, the day began with Empowerment sessions.
Empowerment Session 1:
Dr. Dee Grace, PhD, of Bedside Manners is a cancer patient advocate who teaches that we can “conquer and prevent cancer holistically” She spoke about the importance of eating healthy eating as well as provided tips on how to purchase and prepare various fruits and vegetables. She prepared a delicious green smoothie for us to sample using fresh ingredients.
You may recall that Dr. Dee was a guest on my Podcast recently and you can listen to the entire broadcast interview here.
Empowerment Session 2:
Dr. Grace Liu, and Dr. Lewis Yu, owners of All About Smiles; spoke about holistic dentistry and “preparing your mouth for the fight of your life: what you should know to optimize your oral health”. This husband and wife duo told us about the danger of mercury fillings as well as the proper technique for removing mercury restorations.
Midday, we broke for lunch which also gave the attendees an opportunity to check out the vendors and exhibitors where they could receive a little pampering with a chair massage and/or hand massage as well as receive samples from Chanel and organic honey tasting from Queen Honey.
I even indulged in my first chair massage!
After lunch which was prepared by Jimmy Johns and Mama’s in the Kitchen we listened to Joan DelFattore, Ph.D., from Christiana Care Health System, “Beyond Journaling: How Writing Can Help to Relieve Stress. Whether you’ve been keeping a journal for years or are new to reflective writing, the presentation helped us learn more about research-based techniques for using writing to relieve stress.
