Sara Whelan, MSW, LSW
Oncology Social Worker
Sara is an oncology social worker at CancerCare, providing counseling to people coping with cancer and people who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
Sara shares, “I am incredibly proud to be a part of CancerCare’s social work team. Whether a client is diagnosed themselves, are caring for somebody who is diagnosed, or lost a loved one, each individual story is different and it is my privilege to give them a safe and nonjudgmental space to process and find the resilience and inner strength to continue to push forward through what may be one of the most difficult times in their lives. Like so many, cancer has impacted my life in multitude of ways and bearing witness to each person’s strength and resiliency is incredibly inspiring and being a small part of their journey is an honor.”
