Cancer Resource Guide
July 14, 2014
Through the voice of cancer patients in the Greater Lafayette area, we found that there is a need to identify local resources for newly diagnosed cancer patients in order to have this information easily accessible and all in one place. The Cancer Culture and Community program, part of the Oncological Sciences Center at Purdue University, brought together a number of local individuals to form a coalition of health care providers and advocacy groups to address this unmet need. This resource guide is a result of our findings. Our hope is that this tool will help empower those during their cancer journey, family members and/or caregivers. Please help us to help others by sending information we may have missed, or a resource that needs to be added to Kris Swank at firstname.lastname@example.org.
