BENEFITING: CANCER PATIENT SUPPORT FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: Face Off Against
EVENT DATE: Jan 31, 2016
The Cancer Patient Support Foundation (CPS) is an independent, nonproﬁt organization dedicated to offering comprehensive psychosocial services to cancer patients and their families throughout Vermont and upstate New York. Our vision is that all who face cancer can do so with dignity, confidence and serenity. Contributions to CPS make possible a range of supportive services, including psychological, nutritional counseling and educational programs. We also provide emergency funding for patients who ﬁnd themselves in ﬁnancial hardship due to their illness.
Facing a cancer diagnosis can be a time of fear and anxiety. Patients often have many questions and difﬁcult decisions to make. The creation of our nonprofit, now in its 14th year, was inspired by the desire of cancer survivors and other dedicated members of the community to be an essential helping hand for patients and their families when facing cancer.
