Proceeds will be donated to University of California San Francisco Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center to support families struggling with a cancer diagnosis. Psycho-Oncology at the Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center includes psychologists and psychiatrists who care deeply about the emotional needs of patients and their families as they cope with cancer and treatment. The team works closely with Cancer Center providers to identify and address challenges with adjusting to the illness; the stresses of medical treatment; emotional needs; relationships and caregiving; coping with pain, insomnia and other symptoms; and much more. Providers use behavioral approaches and medication to help individuals who are facing cancer and treatment, and life beyond. The clinical service is open to individuals being treated at UCSF and their family members. FJORD Design and Innovation from Accenture Interactive is a global consulting design agency with a studio located in the heart of San Francisco. The San Francisco team has chosen to run in the race for their loved ones, their community and themselves. Please consider supporting our effort to enhance the emotional wellbeing of those battling cancer, directly or indirectly.
