Kathy shares, “I am proud and humbled to be a social worker at CancerCare for so many years. Although I have an administrative role at this time, I continue to provide clinical support to patients and caregivers, which is the part of my job I cherish. Providing a safe space for clients to share their feelings and concerns around their cancer is so important and necessary. My clients have taught me to appreciate life each and every day, and to be grateful for family, friends and colleagues.”
