Happy New Year to you and your loved ones from CancerCare!
This past year, CancerCare’s professional oncology social workers helped more people affected by cancer than ever before—more than 110,000 people received our direct assistance and support.
As we enter 2013, we are pleased to announce many upcoming Connect booklets, Connect Education Workshops and community programs to meet the needs of people coping with cancer.
As always, all CancerCare services are provided completely free of charge.
Leading experts will provide up-to-date information in one-hour workshops over the telephone or online during CancerCare’s free Connect Education Workshops in 2013. Some of the topics that will be addressed include metastatic prostate cancer treatment updates, emerging therapies in Hodgkin and T-cell lymphomas, and developments reported at the 35th Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
All workshops are free, and registration is required. Visit www.cancercare.org/connect_workshops to register.

CancerCare will also debut new and updated Connect booklets and fact sheets in 2013 on topics such as liver cancer, relaxation techniques and mind/body practices, multiple myeloma, colorectal cancer, financial assistance, and breast cancer. Visit www.cancercare.org/publications to read CancerCare’s publications and order free copies.
CancerCare will offer free wig and prostheses clinics at our national office in New York City throughout 2013. The next breast prosthesis clinic will take place Wednesday, January 9, 9:30am-12:00pm. The next wig clinic will take place Friday, January 11, 2:00pm-3:30pm.
We also offer free wigs by appointment in our Norwalk, CT, Ridgewood, NJ and Long Island, NY offices.
Registration is required to attend these clinics. To register, please contact 800‑813‑HOPE (4673) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you live in another part of the country and are seeking resources in your community, contact us at email@example.com or call 800‑813‑HOPE (4673) and our professional oncology social workers will refer you to local resources.
We are currently in the process of planning approximately 20 fundraising events to be held from New York City to Los Angeles. At this time we are also hoping to reschedule the CancerCare 10th Annual Lung Cancer Walk for Hope this spring, which was cancelled in November due to Hurricane Sandy. We will keep you posted as we receive more information and details.
