Our Families

Hear from Families Served by Cancer Connection

Since forming in 2008, Cancer Connection of Northwest Ohio, Inc., has worked with hundreds of cancer patients and their families across Greater Toledo. Each experience of working with a patient and his or her family is unique. We work hard to meet every need and challenge with personalized care and programming.

Patient and Client Served: “When I was diagnosed with cancer, my heart was filled with confusion and fear. Fortunately, I received tremendous support from my loving family and friends, but still, many questions filled my mind. Cancer Connection provides both support and direction. From a simple phone call to check how you are doing (sometimes the simple things mean the most) or accompanying you to a doctor’s appointment, to connecting you to whatever resources will best alleviate your questions and fears, Cancer Connection is there for you. Thanks Cancer Connection!”

Cari Jennings, Board Member: “Jean carijenningsdaughterand her team were an instrumental part of our journey when my 19-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma. Jean literally came to the hospital for our first visit. She was a wealth of information at a time when I could only concentrate on my daughter. She guided us financially and helped to make us aware of many programs out there for cancer patients. My daughter enjoyed the massages, energy work and many other services offered and recommended by Cancer Connection. Jean has become a good friend through all of this and I recently joined the board due to the great things happening at Cancer Connection. I would recommend them to anyone diagnosed with cancer or who has a friend or family member with cancer.”

Patient and Client Served: “Approximately 2 years ago, my life, and the life of my husband and young child, turned upside down when we discovered my brain cancer. We had no idea how to handle any of our new struggles. Cancer Connection gave us so much assistance to figure out how to move forward and begin to build our new lives. We were, and still are, so incredibly fortunate to have Cancer Connection in our lives.”

Patient and Client Served: “I became a client of Cancer Connection a little over 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with non-invasive DCIS. Jean not only gave me hope, she sent me in the right direction for help as I was unemployed, attending college, and uninsured. Words or text cannot express how genuinely helpful and compassionate Jean and her crew were to me during my treatment. I am forever grateful for all they did for me and would recommend their services to anyone with a cancer diagnosis.”
