Jen Sinclair and Sandy will share what being involved with the Cancer Support Community has meant to them. We will hear Sandy's story and how she became involved with the program. Jen completed a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University in Philadelphia. Jen started at The Wellness Community - Greater Lehigh Valley in 2004 as a Support Group Facilitator. In 2008, she became the Assistant Program Director, and then subsequently became the Program Director in 2009. In that time, the organization changed its name to the Cancer Support Community. The Cancer Support Community is a international nonprofit organization that provides information, support and hope to people with cancer and their loved ones. CSC has a network of over 55 affiliates. Through participation in professionally led support groups, educational workshops and mind, body, spirit classes utilizing the Patient Active concept, people affected by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation and restore hope regardless of the stage of the disease. Most importantly, CSC provides a home-like setting for people facing cancer to connect with and learn from each other. At the Cancer Support Community, all programs are free of charge.
Cindy Carter is President and Co-Founder of the Cancer Support Foundation -- a non-profit organization providing advocacy and some assistance financially to patients with cancer. The assistance is for non-medical expenses. Advocacy services are provided for medical care.
Cindy will be discussing several challenges cancer patients are currently facing.as they travel through treatment, hopefully to survival.
We'll be talking about issues such as the need for food delivery, transportation, and the problems of getting energy assistance - especially for electric service.
The Cancer Support Foundation is a state-wide service organization, run entirely by volunteer. Donations are requested. With no paid salaries, approximately 90% of all donations go out to the cancer patients to help them maintain a rood over their head, food on the table and utility services along with transportation expenses to and from treatment.
Join us for an exclusive broadcast shining a light on the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention right here in NYC. We'll be speaking with Dr. Gina Villani (CEO/Medical Director), Marci Brenholz (Director of Development) and AYA patient Danny Jimenez. Survivor spotlight on Tamika Phillips.
The chief complaint of cancer patients to their doctors is fatigue. In this world of technology, we have so much help with all from all sorts of machines. Dr. Ken Weizer shares with us his thoughts on the cause of fatigue in our lives – “the Terrible Toos.” (No, we are not talking about toddlers.) But Dr. Ken gives us his solution as well – ‘the Wonderful Ones.” What does he mean? Listen in to Dr. Ken’s discussion to find out.
