Participating groups helped guests explore available options to address the challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis, such as financial assistance programs available for transportation services and medication. Organizations also answered questions about employment concerns for people living with cancer, and provided information on how to better understand home care and hospice care options available to those fighting cancer.
