Episode 54: Moving the Needle in Cancer Care.
Nothing in life can prepare a person for the moment a clinician says, “You have cancer.”
A cancer diagnosis can turn a person’s world upside down — emotionally, physically and financially — and can bring many changes for them and their loved ones. Navigating the unknown is where CancerCare® can support patients and their families.
Founded in 1944, CancerCare is the leading national organization providing free, professional support services and information to help people manage the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer.
All CancerCare services are provided by master's-prepared oncology social workers and world-leading cancer experts. The organization provides financial assistance, counseling and case management to oncology patients across the country, with a goal to provide a high quality of life for the patient diagnosed with cancer.
