By providing students with knowledge and educating them on risk factors associated with cancer, we empower them to be proactive in adopting cancer-prevention strategies within their daily lives. Increased knowledge leads to real change through in-depth risk assessment, increased skill sets to support family or friends impacted by cancer, and healthy lifestyle habits.
The C through Cancer program was an eye opener for many of my students. Seeing peers and older individuals in need has sparked a desire to reach out to Gilda’s Club (now Cancer Pathways Midwest) to see how “we” could help. A core group was formed to investigate ways to support the members plus a larger group is now making cards for anyone that needs to have their day brightened. We would not have reached out had it not been for the well put together C through Cancer Program. We can’t wait to see where this collaboration will take us!
