Review for LAZAREX CANCER FOUNDATION, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My role as a volunteer Medical Liaison at Lazarex allows me to interact with cancer patients and their families who are searching for another chance at life after they've been told there's nothing more that can be done. I am there to talk with family members who are scared, confused, frustrated, and hopeful. We talk about clinical trial options, alternative treatments, diet, and overall patient well being. We talk about how the family member can best support the patient. We talk about what the patient is going through and think through options of what can be done next. In every conversation, there is a feeling of hope, comfort, reassurance. Being a part of Lazarex allows me to make a difference in the life of a family who is struggling during very stressful and uncertain circumstances. The feeling is extremely rewarding and humbling.
