We hope you can join us. We promise you will leave feeling glad you came. The patients and caregivers, who attended previous sessions, have always said how helpful the information has been in helping them to get through treatment with improved understanding of treatment and resources. Special thanks to the American Cancer Society for making the program available to its community partners to offer the patients and caregivers here at Holy Cross Hospital and from the community.
