Is This Site For Me?
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, this site was created for you. You are not alone. Serious illness, trauma or grief can create spiritual distress leaving one struggling with questions such as “Why is this happening to me?” “What do I have to live for?” “What now?”
As you live with cancer, you need to gather support and resources for your whole self. You need to know that there is a safe place where you can share your fears, your emotions, and your struggle to find meaning, comfort, and hope.
This site has been created with the expert help of professional board-certified health care chaplains who are experienced in attending to the questions and concerns that you, as someone diagnosed with cancer or as a caregiver, are most likely dealing with.
We understand that spirituality, religion, and beliefs are unique to each person and the information and resources here respect those differences.
We are dedicated to providing spiritual care, comfort and support for everyone facing cancer. The resources are aimed at serving the newly diagnosed, those in treatment now, those for whom treatment is not going well, survivors, and family or friend caregivers.
By exploring spiritual issues, painful feelings, chronic pain, grief and loss, and information on planning ahead, we hope this will be a resource for you and your loved ones in your cancer journey.
