Jennifer shares, “CancerCare is an amazing and dynamic organization that provides an array of much needed services to cancer patients, caregivers and families throughout our country. Being a part of such an incredible team that continually strives to fill the gaps where there are health disparities, barriers to care and often little to no resources for individuals in need of supportive counseling, education and financial assistance is incredibly fulfilling. Having the knowledge that I might play a small part in helping clients ease some of their concerns while they discover their own strengths and resiliency as they navigate their way is truly an honor and a blessing.”
