CancerCare’s Coping Circle Community Programs is proud to present a series of national virtual workshops focused on the needs of people with cancer and their caregivers.

The workshop modules will each focus on a skill or topic that may impact the person with cancer and their caregiver while they cope with cancer – both in-treatment and post-treatment.

The objective is to assist and support people living with cancer and their caregivers while providing information and education, as well as suggestions for improving life with cancer skills.


Christine Calafiore, LSW is an oncology social worker at CancerCare and will co-facilitate all sessions.
