Because we understand that the cancer survivorship journey will vary greatly from one survivor to the next, and The Cope Well Foundation may not suit the complete needs of every cancer survivor, we want to provide our members and viewers with additional links to resources that may also be of help to them.
The links below are meant to provide practical information and emotional support for those facing a cancer diagnoses. These links are just a few of the many websites that are dedicated to cancer survivors. Although we have elected to link to resources that focus primarily on addressing the emotional affects of cancer survivorship, the optimal delivery of cancer care relies on many other factors such as financial advice, legal support, patient advocacy and other services. Therefore, we encourage you to reach out and get support for each of the areas, in addition to emotional support, that may also be affecting your survivorship journey.
Based on some the general emotional needs of our members, we recommend the following links for viewing. If you would like to recommend a website for us to link to, please contact us today.
