Sarah Cannon - December 01, 2015

Black Friday and Cyber Monday brought discounts and deals for holiday shopping. Today, we celebrate the 4th annual "Giving Tuesday," a global day to give thanks and give back. Giving Tuesday

In the world of cancer, giving can take many forms - researchers give their time investigating new therapies for more effective treatments, nurses and navigators give their compassion and knowledge to patients throughout their cancer journeys, cancer research supporters give resources to fund new clinical trials and advancements in care, and caregivers and family give their unwavering support to their loved ones every step of the way. Each part of this giving team moves the fight against cancer forward.

This Giving Tuesday, we celebrate all of those giving to cancer patients in various ways. Those facing cancer need support from a multidisciplinary team, which includes caregivers, family and friends.

Supporting loved ones with cancer is not an easy task. A diagnosis can bring new terminology to understand, new emotions to process, and new physical challenges to overcome. Sarah Cannon provides patients and their families with the resources they need to stay informed throughout their cancer journey and confident in their care.

This Giving Tuesday, give your time and resources to support a friend or family member with cancer.

You can find practical tips to show your support and improve your loved one's experience from diagnosis through survivorship.
