Great opportunity to do some holiday shopping and contribute to an amazing program.
Meg Berte' Owen, a Manchester native, lost her battle from the late term effects of Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer treatment on October 15, 2009 at the young age of 37, after first being diagnosed at age 23. For 14 years, Meg learned that patients should navigate their "survivorship path" for the rest of his or her life, and wanted others to know people with cancer can live longer and have much better lives through Survivorship.
Cancer Survivorship became Meg's passion -- its the movement to reduce the late term effects of cancer treatment; to increase surveillance for recurring cancers; and to overcome physical, mental and spiritual effects the disease can permanently impose upon entire families.
The Cancer Survivorship Program at ECHN Cancer Center was created in response to Meg's desire that people with cancer, their families and their support system receive -- especially after treatment is completed and the biggest obstacles begin to surface -- access to programs and support that is not covered by their standard care plan, but is essential to living one's best life.
Funding for the ECHN Survivorship Program comes from the Meg Berte Owen Cancer Survivorship Fund.
