Dear Survivorship Community,

My name is Spence, and I have inherited editing the Notes from Shamai. We would like to thank her for her long-time editing of the Notes & Journal. I am a longtime Survivorship member, joining back in 2001, and attending workshops and conferences since then. Most recently, I have volunteered at the last three conferences. I have enjoyed the resources that Survivorship has provided, and hope to continue to give back by providing survivor resources in the Notes.
The Survivorship conference was very successful this year. Thank you to all who spoke, attended, and volunteered. If you have ideas for next year’s conference such as speakers, topics, or any other comments, let us know.

We are currently adding some new rules to the message boards in order to make them safer. Please bear with us during this transition period. If you have any questions or comments about this, write us at .
