We collaborate with Cornell University in holding monthly seminars in which cancer research is presented in lay language. Most months, a doctoral student reviews a developing area of cancer research.
Everyone is welcome. We've found these meetings to be lively and fun. Researchers, students, clients, and members of the public all attend on a regular basis.
If you'd like a ride from CRC to Cornell, call Bob at 277-0960.
The group will meet every Thursday from Oct. 2 - Nov. 6 from 5:30-7:30pm at CRC.
With the aid of structure, prompts, reading aloud, and having fun, this group will gather with the shared experience of having cancer, and will create whatever comes out of the time shared together.
You may be someone who journals, is a published author, has never written, or who simply loves poetry -- the only requirement is feeling a pull to participate, and being willing to write and share.
We will write because our experiences take on shape and meaning when we put pen to paper, when we follow what is presented, and when we read them aloud to others who are listening. This will not be a therapeutic group that writes, but rather a gathering to write and tell stories that may turn in to something performed.
The group leader will structure the time and exercises, and help participants begin to craft those pieces into performative work if they'd like.
The class will be lead by Kira Lallas, LCSW, who supports families who have a child with a life-threatening illness. She earned a BFA in Theatre with a concentration in writing and performing solo autobiographical work.
There is no charge, but preregistration is required. Please call 277-0960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Cancer Resource Center is delighted to announce the appointment of Fran Spadafora Manzella as the organization's new Associate Director.
For the past several years, Fran has worked at the Human Services Coalition of Tompkins County, serving as the Director of the 211 Call Center, the information and referral program serving Tompkins and Cortland Counties. Prior to that, Fran held leadership positions with other well-known non-profit organizations including Cayuga Addiction Recovery Services, and the Center for Crime Victim & Sexual Assault Services (founded as Ithaca Rape Crisis).
Fran holds a master's degree in social work from Columbia Univ. with a minor in business administration.
Bob Riter, CRC's Executive Director, said that Fran has a "unique combination of people skills and organizational skills that fit perfectly with our organization and its mission."
Fran will begin work at CRC late this Fall, and will be involved in all phases of the organization.
A nice article just appeared in the Cornell Chronicle about our collaboration with cancer researchers.
