About Our Program

Information & Education

We pride ourselves on offering information and education programs from experts in their field. There are so many aspects to a cancer diagnosis from health and welfare, to legal, to just learning a better way to understand how this diagnosis may affect us. Do I need a living will? What should I do about social security disability? Our legal expert is here to answer those questions. Why am I so forgetful? Why can’t I remember why I walked into this room? A myriad of medical and psychological doctors come in to talk about that phenomenon known as ‘chemobrain’.  Why are my skin and nails so dry? What can I do about my scars? Again, our medical community is chock full of experts that are willing to share their expertise in a lecture followed by a Q&A session after. If there is a topic you’d like to know more about, call our program director, and make a suggestion-we’ll do what we can to provide what you need.
