The Story of Cancer in Central Pennsylvania – Reducing the Cancer Burden through Patient Navigation

A diagnosis of cancer is life-changing and will likely bring important questions and concerns to mind. What if my insurance will not cover the full expense of treatment? How will I get to my treatments that are a 60-minute drive from home in the winter? What will life be like after treatment? Is there anyone who can help me better prepare?

The diagnosis may also stir questions about cancer in your neighborhood or in central Pennsylvania. Is there more cancer in my community than elsewhere? Are my friends and family members more likely than others to get cancer? What can they do to reduce their risk of cancer? They do not like to go to the doctor until there is a problem, but should they go anyway? Is there a vaccine to prevent cancer?

Come with us on an interactive journey of cancer in Central Pennsylvania and learn how to overcome these cancer challenges.
