It is natural to feel overwhelmed by fear and confusion if you have just received the news that you have cancer. This program focuses on what you can do: researching your cancer, reaching out for support, and taking one day at a time. Become your own advocate with support from the people that you trust.
Patients Living with Cancer
Cancer can be closely watched and treated, but sometimes it never completely goes away. It can be a chronic (ongoing) illness. This program focuses on helping patients adjust to the "new normal." It takes time for everyone to fully understand the lifestyle changes that occur as a result of living with cancer, and it can be difficult to cope with.
Terminally Ill Patients
Talking about dying is not easy, but it is extremely important. This program focuses on end-of-life planning, quality of life, and dignity with practical and spiritual tools used by patients who have stared down the same path.
Loved Ones & Caregivers
If someone close to you is diagnosed with cancer, chances are you and other members of your family are still in shock. This program focuses on learning to understand how to stay calm during this roller coaster, as well as how to best take care of yourself to avoid stress and emotional burnout.
