A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to participate in the filming of Fighting For Those Touched By Cancer with Professor Tom Merluzzi, the director of the University of Notre Dame's Lab for Psycho-Oncology. Tom is well known in our local cancer community and internationally for his passion for cancer survivors. He has studied the coping behaviors of survivors for many years and his Cancer Behavior Inventory is used by researchers all over the world.
Wow, are we excited! After three years of planning, renovations have finally begun on the new RiverBend Cancer Services Wellness House. Located at 3516 E. Jefferson Boulevard in South Bend, this existing building is humming with activity.
One of the most important things we have had to do is lay a solid foundation for our endeavor. Countless hours have gone into the design of the new building so that we can offer a wonderful experience for cancer survivors and families. Focus groups are meeting to determine what new programs and activities will happen in our new home. Board and committee members are raising funds that are needed to make this dream a reality.
