“We’re excited to partner with Unite for HER to enhance the wide range of psychosocial services they provide at no cost to women diagnosed with breast cancer,” said Meg Maley, RN, BSN, chief executive officer, CanSurround. “We share an understanding that the psychosocial distress unleashed by the cancer experience is common, intense, destructive, and sadly until now—oftentimes needless,” said Maley. “By collaborating with Unite for Her, CanSurround strives to end emotional suffering in anyone affected by cancer—patients, family, friends, and co-workers.”
“CanSurround is a wonderful addition to the complementary therapies and resources Unite for HER provides to women diagnosed with breast cancer" said President and Founder Sue Weldon. “As an offering of our Wellness Passport, women can access CanSurround online to help manage emotional stress from the comfort of their own homes during a very vulnerable time in their lives.”
An innovative digital solution solely focused on the self-management of emotional stress, CanSurround is available 24/7 and is easy to use with a mobile phone, tablet or computer. Participants regain their footing by choosing from a wide range of evidence-based tools that promote healing of mind, body and spirit. Among the platform’s distinctive features is a self-inquiry process that teaches participants to work with challenging emotions and to feel better while living with cancer.
