Event Description

A cancer diagnosis can be shocking and overwhelming to experience. After diagnosis, there are many treatment decisions that must be made. Some of these decisions are based on your current financial situation, which can be challenging. This can lead to feelings of frustration and anxiety.

Join the African American Myeloma Community Chapter as we welcome Financial Program Manager, coach, and financial planner Diahanna Vallentine who will teach us how to recognize and overcome financial challenges when seeking treatment for cancer so those unnecessary feelings of frustration and anxiety can be avoided.
