Faces of RCC

Having Cancer When You Have Little Kids at Home

Margaret, Ovarian Cancer Survivor

It was really hard for me to know what to tell my kids. The social workers at RCC helped. My children were able to take a tour of RCC and see where I would be for treatment. They talked to my children about what to expect and put them at ease.
