Melisa shares, “It is a privilege to be working as a staff member at CancerCare. I am looking forward to assessing the needs and providing supports to the Long Island Community within our Long Island office location. The organization’s mission and values are ones that I hold so close and personal. My passion is driven by the clients who possess such resilience and strength, the staff who work so hard to advocate and support the needs of the population we service, and the personal connection the impact a cancer diagnosis has on an individual/family. I look forward to continuing to develop ongoing supports and resources for our clients, with the hope of making any difference I can in navigating a cancer diagnosis.”
