JamesCare for Life

Supportive Care Programs for Those Diagnosed With Cancer and Their Caregivers

Cancer Survivorship begins the day of diagnosis and continues throughout the balance of life. Living with cancer often presents many new coping challenges and impacts all areas of life. JamesCare for Life provides free supportive programs for cancer patients and caregivers/family members that can be accessed from the time of diagnosis. Programs focus on the physical, emotional, practical and spiritual ways that life is impacted by cancer and are designed to empower survivors and caregivers by providing education, support and coping tools that aid health and well-being.

Programs are offered in person, online, as well as on-demand video. Download the full program brochure.
