As the only non-profit focused on the intersection of work and cancer, we have expanded our offerings to include newly developed initiatives that are unique and relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, we launched our first new program and received this note from one of our attendees:
"I would be honored to write a testimony for you on how perfect and abundant your programs are and how they have become a lifeline towards the future for me, living with cancer and being a professional. I cannot imagine where I would have found so much help, guidance, and resources. I have referred many people to your website. I am so very grateful."
On May 5th, the philanthropic community is coming together for #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of unity and giving directly related to the urgency charities of all kinds are experiencing.
As so many of you know, CAC’s mission is built upon providing expert advice, practical information and vital services – free of charge – online, in print and in person. We are here to help you face the challenges that can come with a cancer diagnosis. During this time of crisis, the work of Cancer and Careers is needed more than ever.
In response to this unprecedented crisis, we’ve expanded our virtual programs to offer sessions one to two times a week, to address your work-related concerns during this challenging time. This includes virtual Q+A’s, job search webinars, and putting vital resources in one place to ensure you have access to critical support and information: https://www.cancerandcareers.org/en/covid19.
Now, more than ever, we need help to raise critical funds and help to spread the word. We know times are tough for so many, but any support you could provide would be so greatly appreciated. In preparation for May 5, here’s how you can support Cancer and Careers:
- Make an online donation at www.cancerandcareers.org/donate
