CAPE COD HEALTHCARE: Expansion of Cancer Services
The mission of Cape Cod Healthcare is to coordinate and deliver the highest quality, accessible health services to all Cape Cod residents and visitors. The Cape Cod Healthcare Regional Cancer Network brings together a team of experts who work collaboratively to provide the most advanced cancer diagnosis and treatment using the latest technology. From leading-edge MRI and 3D imaging for early diagnosis, to targeted immunotherapy drugs that help the body’s own immune system destroy tumors, to the highest-precision radiology treatments, Cape Cod Healthcare’s Regional Cancer Network delivers an array of treatments to provide the best cancer care available anywhere.
Cape Wellness Collaborative (CWC) provides integrative wellness therapies to anyone on Cape Cod and the Islands facing cancer. In partnership with a team of outstanding local wellness professionals, CWC provides free therapies to those with cancer who are currently undergoing or recovering from treatment. CWC is expanding its programs with three new initiatives – Wellness Eats, Wellness Moves, and Wellness Cares – that will provide additional support to people with cancer and their caregivers. Wellness Moves is an approachable, low cost way for people facing cancer to be able to exercise. The goal of Wellness Eats is to provide nutrient dense, healthy, delicious meals to people undergoing cancer treatment. Wellness Cares offers resources, tools and suggestions designed to support caregivers.
Children’s Cove is the local Child Advocacy Center providing a multi-disciplinary response to child victims of sexual abuse, severe physical abuse, witness to domestic violence and commercial sexual exploitation. Children’s Cove offers comprehensive and collaborative response services at no cost to survivors of child abuse through its evidence-based programs, network of community partnerships, educational outreach and awareness efforts. Its multi-disciplinary team works together to empower survivors, promote healthy outcomes, and help mitigate the stigma of child abuse. The Teen TASK (Taking a Stand for Kids) Force is a group for high school students who raise awareness for the programs and services of the agency by educating their peers on child abuse issues.
Heroes in Transition (HIT) recognizes those who have served or who are serving our country by providing assistance in four key areas: home modifications for disabled veterans, transitional support group therapy, financial support for service families, and assistance dogs for veterans. With a focus on the needs of the family, HIT created two new programs that will enhance the transition mission. The Couples Gathering Program and Retreats provide military couples an opportunity to meet others who share in the unique bond of being in the service, while the Families in Transition Program includes the highly successful equine summer program and family outings throughout the year. Services are provided at no cost to veterans and their families.
The Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary educates children, families and people of all ages about Cape Cod ecology and habitats, and protects endangered, threatened, and at-risk wildlife. Wellfleet Bay provides peace and unmatched beauty on the hillsides and shoreline overlooking Wellfleet Harbor. Extensive trails explore the salt marsh, sandy barrier beach, and pine woodlands, each attracting a wide array of wildlife. The Sanctuary features a universally accessible trail and an award-winning "green" Nature Center with numerous exhibits and aquariums. Wellfleet Bay provides a resource for local children and aims to strengthen and expand innovative, hands-on conservation science education programs in partnership with local schools.
