Members Only - New Program Announcement! January 12, 2021

Dear Jill Members,

 

We’re excited to share with you a new program we just launched that was made possible with your support! 

 

Kathy Bucher, a former patient navigator with the American Cancer Society, has joined Jack’s Caregiver Coalition as a volunteer Care Navigator. Her goal is to come alongside caregivers and their loved ones to bring encouragement and equip them to navigate the complexities of the healthcare system as well as make them aware of resources available to them. Even if you've been doing the caregiver thing for a long time, it's very likely that Kathy might have something to offer you. And she would absolutely love to hear from you.

To learn more and engage with Kathy please visit our new Care Navigator program webpage.
