Danielle shares, “Throughout my life, I have been sensitive to the plight of individuals facing difficult challenges in their lives. At CancerCare, I have the opportunity to help people facing a cancer diagnosis and its associated challenges. I get to help the affected individual as well as the caretaker and family members providing information, referrals and much-needed emotional support. Working at CancerCare allows me to impact people’s lives during a very challenging time, while at the same time gives purpose and meaning to my life.”
