Urgent Care

A cancer diagnosis can be one of the most emotional moments in a person’s life. In that moment, fear, anxiety, sadness, and confusion can be just some of the feelings that take hold before their treatment journey begins. No one goes through cancer treatment alone, and this process can affect many people on a patient’s path to recovery including their family, friends, colleagues, and care team. Between all the appointments and challenges, there are often people or moments that help bring the light into a dark situation.

Past and Current Patients:

We want to hear about what or who motivated you, kept you going, inspired you, healed you, and gave you the extra nudge that helped along the way. If you could say anything to your former self on the day you received the news of your diagnosis, what would you say?

Caregivers:

The caregivers – from medical providers to supportive family members – that provide healing, emotional support, and treatment, are also part of the cancer care journey and can be challenging roles to fill. They hold hands, deliver difficult news, discuss complex issues with families, and so much more. We also want to hear from you about what keeps or kept you going, who inspired you, or a situation that reinforced why you work in oncology.
