CANSURVIVE GYN CANCER SUPPORT GROUP
July 3, 2011

There was a large void in support services for patients with gyn cancers in our community. CanSurvive provided a resource for people to talk to others dealing with the burden of cancer and cancer treatments and the indelible mark it puts on a person's psyche. They meet regularly and provide updates on medical issues, provide programs on survivorship, and plan activities to assist patients currently ongoing treatments. One of their latest activities was to provide laptop computers for patients undergoing chemotherapy so that they may access Caring Bridge on the internet during treatment. It's really hard to put down in so few words what all this organization means to our patients and to my practice.

The Great!
