CancerCare saved my life. My son and dearest friend died in November 2005. Life ended for me the same day that Nick died. But I had two children who needed me, I had to live even if there seemed to be no way I could. Even breathing was an effort. My children saw Susan after meeting with them she said, I didn't know Nick but I can tell he was a special boy, he is alive in both your other children. What a gift. My counselor Kathy helped me to learn what I thought was impossible, how to live again.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very compassionate and caring. They were also very skilled in helping their clients travel grief's long hard journey. They were very open to suggestions about what could help clients.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Client Served & I received weekly grief counseling, attended bereavement retreats.
