Testimonials TESTIMONIALS We at the American Cancer Society are committed to improving the resources and quality of care given to cancer patients and their families and caregivers in the Triangle area. We welcome this magazine as the newest form of cancer support and encourage companies and businesses with this same commitment to support these efforts as well. Dan Thorpe Area Executive Director American Cancer Society We’re excited about the opportunities to communicate with and educate area cancer patients and their family members through this new publication. A cancer diagnosis can be so overwhelming—for everyone involved—that any resource that can ease a patient or caregiver through the treatment and recovery process on a local level is a welcome addition to the printed materials we keep on hand at Duke Raleigh Cancer Center. Brenda Wilcox RN, BSN, OCN Oncology Patient Navigator Duke Cancer Center—Raleigh Learning that you have cancer is a difficult experience. A person may feel anxious, afraid or overwhelmed and wonder how they can cope during the days to come. Oftentimes, the emo- tions of having a life-changing diagnosis are overlooked as one has to deal with the medical side of cancer primarily. However, research has shown that knowledge, support and effective coping strategies can transform the experience of cancer into a journey toward wholeness. I believe that the vision of Touched by Cancer is to provide a space for cancer patients and caregivers to gain the education, guidance and support needed to empower them through their cancer journey and beyond. I fully support this important magazine and look forward to contributing through my experiences as a psychologist working with cancer patients and caregivers.
