Welcome to our new video series, Good Medicine with Summit Medical Group! Good Medicine videos feature the philanthropic activities of our healthcare providers in our towns, our state, and around the globe. Their stories are compelling; their work is life-changing. In this video, Dr. Andrew Gnoy and his colleagues shave their heads in support of the St. Baldrick's Foundation and raise funds for childhood cancer research.
Someone I Love is Sick: Helping Very Young Children Cope with Cancer in the Family is a customizable book to use when talking with children ages 2-6 years old when a parent or grandparent has cancer. It addresses all stages of the cancer journey including diagnosis, treatment, hospitalization, recurrence and end of life. The book can be used by families and health care professionals.
Imerman Angels carefully matches and individually pairs a person touched by cancer (a cancer fighter or survivor) with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer (a Mentor Angel). Cancer caregivers (spouses, parents, children and other family and friends of fighters) also receive 1-on-1 connections with other caregivers and survivors.
