here to read an article published in the San Diego Union Tribune
on the Cancer Coping Center. This article describes the genesis of the Cancer Coping Center.
Cancer is a devastating disease impacting patients, their loved ones and the
caregivers. Our current health system focuses on disease prevention
and control but overlooks its effect on the person's humanity. A holistic
and humanistic approach to patient care is our focus.
We offer coping strategies through creative expression.
We make available trained volunteer facilitators who provide a creative
process for patients, family members, and caregivers to give them the option
to work through their feelings, thoughts, and emotions, which are otherwise
overlooked in the pursuit of prolonging life. Through creativity, the Cancer Coping Center seeks to enhance the quality of life for patients, their families and caregivers. In this way, all stakeholders are actively involved in a creative process which augments patient-centered care. Our program is designed to be taken to the facilities. There is no fee in participating in our program. Ultimately, a living legacy in art form is created in the process while all stakeholders are actively engaged in their own quality of life.
