Maria shares, “I feel privileged to work for such a unique organization, one that provides free services to people in a great time of need. I’ve also been lucky to work with knowledgeable colleagues who truly care about their clients. Most importantly, I feel fortunate to be helping people travel through their cancer experiences, figure out what can be changed and accept what can’t, and maximize the sense of choice and quality in their lives, whether that be one month or one year after a cancer diagnosis or the loss of a loved one. Most rewarding to me is when clients realize they don’t have to go through their experience with loss or cancer alone. ”
