The outbreak of COVID-19 is having a major impact on facing cancer and those seeking services and support.
“While the crisis has impacted us all, cancer patients are among the most vulnerable. That is why Cancer Support Community Delaware pivoted quickly to maintain and continue mental health services, educational programming and mind/body stress reduction programs via virtual and telephonic means (still at no cost to the participant). Support continues for cancer patients in Sussex County and throughout the state of Delaware,” said Nicole T. Pickles, executive director of Cancer Support Community Delaware.
The statewide nonprofit is dedicated to helping individuals affected by any type of cancer, including their caregivers and family members, manage both the emotional and physical aspects of the disease.
In light of the worldwide efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, it’s normal to experience feelings of isolation. CSCDE is here to tell people that they are not alone – everyone is in this together.
Program directors are available to speak on the phone individually with people who need support during this time. To reach them, call 302-995-2850. All are reminded to practice their own self-care, so everyone is in the best frame of mind to support the community together.
