Kathy shares, “I feel privileged and blessed to be able to work with cancer patients, their families and the bereaved. Being able to bear witness to their stories and provide hope along their journey is a gift that I cherish. CancerCare is an amazing organization that I feel honored to be a part of for more than 30 years. We have so many caring, dedicated staff here at CancerCare. It makes coming to work each day a pleasure. I love my work!”
