Why Linda Supports CancerCare 

"My CancerCare social worker helped me to see that my cancer diagnosis wasn't the end of the world and that I couldn't let it take over my life."

Cancer Care client, Linda, recently participated in Cancer Care's 31st Annual New Jersery Walk/Run for Hope. Linda was able to use Cancer Care's free practical and emotional services because of supporters of our events, like our upcoming  Connecticut Walk/Run for Hope and Lung Cancer Walk for Hope
