The Virginia Cancer Institute is participating in a pilot program for distribution of the award-winning Cancer Survival Toolbox®. The Toolbox is a National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS) initiative designed to help patients and their families deal effectively with every stage of the disease.
Richmond-based Virginia Cancer Institute is the only medical practice in the United States engaged in this phase of this project. Lessons learned here will shape the Toolbox’s national launch. Under this program, the Virginia Cancer Institute is providing the Toolbox free of charge to its patients. This comprehensive kit consists of a resources booklet and 10 CDs. The CDs cover many issues, ranging from communicating with doctors to paying for treatment and caring for caregivers.
