http://www.ulmanfund.org/patientnavigation.aspx The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults announces launch of Adolescent & Young Adult Patient Navigation Program in partnership with Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center The Ulman Cancer Fund offers TWO types of navigation for young adult cancer patients (18-40 years old) and survivors- remote and on-site. All services are FREE of charge and open to family members and loved ones. UCF remote navigation services are being offered out of our office through email and telephone communication and on-site navigation services are currently being offered in partnership cancer centers in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The couples retreat is for patients living with pancreas cancer and their partners and provides an opportunity to share, give hope and network with others facing the same challenges. It is designed to ease psychological distress for the patient and the spouse and facilitate interactions in an environment that is comfortable and conducive to open frank discussions about emotional impact of pancreas cancer on the patient, spouse and other family members. The program is offered at no cost to the patient and their partner. For more information visit www.hopkinskimmelcancercenter.org
