Player Katya Lezin has written...

Hi Boston area friends! 
 
  I will again be giving a cancer talk in the Boston area, this time
  at Mass General Hospital.  The talk will be on Monday, April 28th
  from 5 pm to 7 pm.  This is not another book reading (for those of
  you who came to my last one); it is actually a repeat of the talk
  I gave at the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's annual conference
  in Las Vegas last month.  One of the participants asked me to do it
  again for her patients and medical staff at Mass General, and she
  said the public is welcome, so I'm inviting you.  
 
  I know a cancer talk is not that appealing to folks who don't have
  cancer, but you should know at this point that I share my journey
  in the most entertaining (and, according to my kids, embarrassing)
  way I can... complete with an accompanying power point
  presentation this time!  (Let's hear it for Katya joining the
  technological revolution.... albeit oh so slowly, with much
  kicking and screaming.)
 
  The talk is free but reservations are required.
  Please click on the link below to register.  I hope to see you there!
