2023 Series POSTPONED

Duration: 90 minutes
Continuing education/contact hours/PDCs are not available for this series

Following a cancer diagnosis, there are many factors patients, their families, and caregivers must manage. This includes treatment decisions and rearranging family or work obligations. During this journey, it can be difficult for patients and their loved ones to prioritize their responsibilities as well as review the legal and financial questions that can and should be addressed. Thoughtfully planning for themselves and their loved ones allows those impacted by cancer to create a sense of relief, and hope, around those unanswered questions. The Purpose in Planning Coping Circle Series will address these issues by providing both educational information on finances and planning as well as emotional guidance to people affected by cancer.
