I am a retired family physician. I had lymphoma, recently NED. I initiated a grant at my oncologist to make mental health evaluation and treatment easily available for cancer patients. It must be part of the treatment plan. I am interested in becoming involved with organizations such as this. Please contact me if there is some way this can happen,
