CancerCare Convened Stakeholder Meeting to Begin Creating Model Disaster Preparedness and Response Program for Cancer Patients and Providers
I joined CancerCare last fall and immediately began working on a multi-stakeholder disaster response program for cancer patients. The first order of the day was to call individuals who had been involved in assisting patients in past disasters to learn what their organizations had done, to understand the challenges faced by cancer patients in the wake of a disaster, and to hear ideas on how we might jointly work on those challenges in the future.
Since 1944, the size and scope of CancerCare has grown tremendously but it has never wavered from its mission of helping people impacted by cancer.
