June Calendar PDF - Cancer Support Community Greater

JUNE 2015
Program Calendar
For 21 years, providing
professional programs
of emotional support,
education and hope for
people impacted by
cancer, at no charge,
so that no one faces
cancer alone.
Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia is so excited to announce that
we are opening a new hospital satellite! We have partnered with Temple University
Hospital to allow us to offer programs within their cancer center. This will be a wonderful
addition to our other three hospital satellites. Attending programs at our hospital satellites
can be very convenient if you have appointments there already and/or if you need to reach
us by public transportation. However, you do not have to be a patient to attend programs
at our hospital satellites. We are looking forward to serving more people than ever who
are in need of support during their cancer journey. Below you will see our calendar for
the month at Temple University Hospital. We will be at Temple Tuesdays, Wednesdays
and Thursdays. Hope to see you there!
Nicole DeCicco, LCSW, Director of Program and Delivery
