Cancer Resource Day Today at Sinai Hospital

Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute
patients, family members and employees are invited to a Cancer Resource Day today in the Cancer Institute Conference Room, Sinai Hospital.

A cancer diagnosis can mean a financial and emotional hardship on patients and families. Participants at today's event include the American Cancer Society, Ruscombe Mansion(Holistic Healing Center), the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Komen Race for the Cure.

"The goal is to bring a variety of local cancer resource providers so that those who are at the hospital, be it for treatment or for visiting, can stop by," says Jill Adler, M.S., Coordinator, Patient Information Services, Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute. "These providers offer education materials, support programs, fund-raising events, volunteer opportunities, and information on subsidies on for things like transportation."
