Ms. Paula Rothenberg – Hope Connections for Cancer Support
Paula Rothenberg (last week’s speaker) is passionate about her agency. The impact of a cancer diagnosis hit home for her when her father died of Leukemia and she became aware of the life-changing impact of dealing with cancer, as a patient and as a loved one. She helped create Hope Connections in 2007 so others could find solace in a caring community. It is a non-profit organization who helps people who have been diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones cope with the emotional impact of the disease through participation in professionally facilitated programs that provide emotional support, education, wellness and hope. Funded by the generous support of individuals, corporations and foundations, all programs are provided free of charge.
