Cancer Hope Network is pleased to partner with Cancer and Careers for their 12th Annual Conference on Work and Cancer. The event is being held virtually on Friday, June 23, 2022. 

This FREE virtual event will explore the complexities working people face as they try to balance their career treatment and recovery with employment. Topics will include job search, legal issues, working during treatment, managing stress and more. CEUs/PDCs will be offered for nurses, social workers and HR professionals.  

“For nearly a quarter century, Cancer and Careers has been empowering cancer patients to thrive in their workplaces,” said CHN Director of External Affairs Sarah Miretti Cassidy. “The National Conference on Work and Cancer is a day of learning and inspiration. We’re proud to continue our support of their vital work as a Community Partner for this year’s conference.”

ABOUT CANCER HOPE NETWORK 

Cancer Hope Network provides free and confidential 1-1 peer support for cancer patients and their loved ones. Our 400+ survivor and caregiver volunteers provide support from (pre)diagnosis, through treatment and into survivorship – including bereavement, when necessary.  

Support Volunteers have faced more than 80 types of cancer. (More than 98% of the cancers that will be diagnosed this year.) They speak 15 languages, are located across the country, and are prepared to offer hope and guidance through a wide variety of challenges that accompany a cancer diagnosis. 

All volunteer and client matches are overseen and supported from beginning to end by a team of healthcare and social work professionals.
