CancerCare Staff Featured in the Journal of Clinical Pathways

Cancer Care's Chief Strategy and Policy Officer, Ellen Miller Sonet, was recently interviewed by the Journal of Clinical Pathways to discuss her work with Cancer Care's Patient Values Initiative. This initiative intends to reframe the national healthcare policy dialogue to ensure that patients' values and priorities are incorporated into treatment decision making.
CancerCare Clients Share Their Stories 
"My social worker suggested I try to journal and make lists, to keep me from feeling too overwhelmed. She'd remind me not to be so hard on myself. Most importantly, she gave me a space to just talk about what was going on."

Helaine first came to Cancer Care after being diagnosed with uterine cancer. She found support from individual counseling with an oncology social worker and through Cancer Care's online support group for people coping with gynecologic cancers.

Ensuring A Legacy of Help and Help for CancerCare

Last year, Cancer Care 's free, professional services helped 195,000 people cope with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis. To be able to continue to provide these free services in the future, we need continued support.

Planned giving is an excellent way to support Cancer Care's  services and make a difference in the lives of those coping with a cancer diagnosis.  It costs you nothing during your lifetime, provides both financial and tax advantages, and enables you to establish a lasting legacy.
