Program gives cancer patients tools to battle despair, depression

“When the [cancer[ disease metastasized to Duffey’s brain last November, her oncologist at Duke University in North Carolina referred her to a Los Angeles-based company called Reimagine. It’s a kind of online Cancer U that offers a nine-part virtual course to teach cancer victims and their loved ones skills for coping with the social, emotional and spiritual challenges that the illness poses.

The doctor told her that the course, known as Pillars4Life, was a clinically proven method that had helped many of her other patients. So Duffey signed up, and she just completed the course last month.”
