Sara shares, “It is an honor and privilege to partake in someone’s cancer journey as their oncology social worker. Those who are impacted by cancer are oftentimes trying to navigate major changes that have occurred in their life due to cancer, whether it is a caregiver, a patient, or someone who is bereaved. Cancer impacts so many areas of life, and as a social worker I am able to provide a safe space, comfort, support, and skills in a group or individual setting to cope with these changes as well as coping with concrete challenges arise. Knowing I was able to help someone impacted by cancer fuels my passion to continue to do this work.”
