According to an article posted on Examiner.com, the Cancer Support Community (CSC), based on the North Jersey Shore, held their first annual National Cancer Survivors Day Walk on the morning of June 3, 2012 in Lincroft, New Jersey. About 350 walkers arrived early to participate in the music-accompanied warm-up. The walk covered a three-mile loop through Thompson Park. There were a total of 24 teams participating in the event, the goal of which was to raise $2,500, which it did thanks to generous donations.
The CSC is a resource for information and education, as well as a place for cancer patients to nurture and support each other while learning to live with a cancer. Its mission is to help those affected by cancer, whether patient, family member, friend, or caregiver; to enhance their wellbeing and health through professional programs of education and counseling. All programs are offered at no cost and people will never have to complete an insurance form. The programs offered at the Cancer Support Community focus on the following:
- Educational Workshops
- Support Groups
- Classes/Social Activities
Support services, such as those above, are essential when coping with cancer, but, unfortunately, the ultimate survival of a cancer patient depends not upon these services, but rather the prompt diagnosis and effective timely treatment of the disease.
If you are suffering or have lost a loved one due to a doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer or failure to prescribe effective or timely treatment, you may be entitled to legal recourse.
