Phoenix Cancer Support Network Lends a Hand for Cancer Patients
November 22, 2017 (Phoenix, Ariz.) - Approximately 1.6 million new cases of cancer are diagnosed in the United States annually, and 595,690 people will lose their battle against this disease. When facing a cancer diagnosis, patients and their families must confront new challenges for which there is often little help available. On the home front, cancer impacts both the patient and their family and friends in numerous ways. Treatment schedules and demands lead to changes in the daily lives for everyone involved. Therefore, planning and coordination are necessary to transport a family member to medical appointments, care for young children, assistance with bill paying or preparing meals. On the medical side, patients and their families often seek guidance locating medical specialists, finding clinical trials, and identifying support groups. Phoenix Cancer Support Network (PCSN) will bridge the gap for cancer patients by providing support, advocacy and guidance. After a year of hard work and research they have opened their doors to patients.
PCSN & VOSJCC (Valley of the Sun, Jewish Community Center) to host Family Fun Day in support of cancer patients.
