Blood cancer and sexuality – What you need to know

Going through a blood cancer may affect your relationship and sex life. Some treatment-related side effects can resolve over time, but others may be long-lasting. Join us for a discussion on how cancer and its treatment can affect sexual function and intimacy. 

Dr. Anne Katz will provide recommendations on how to navigate issues, such as body image and communication, so you can improve and thrive in your existing or future intimate relationship.
