Heartland Cancer Foundation (HCF, heartlandcancerfoundation.org) invites all healthcare professionals to attend their free Oncology Symposium on April 19 at Southeast Community College’s Jack Huck Continuing Education Center that will feature keynote speakers Dr. Matthew Lunning and Madison Kaltenberger. Registration and dinner will be from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m., and the FREE CEU presentations will follow. This event is ideal for physicians, nurses, social workers and advanced care practitioners. Space is limited to 150 attendees.

More than 11,000 Nebraskans will be diagnosed with cancer this year. The Heartland Cancer Foundation believes no cancer patient should fall behind on treatment because they struggle to afford their everyday expenses. HCF aspires to provide compassion and hope and remove barriers to care by covering home, auto and utility costs for local cancer patients in need of additional support during their treatment journey. This practical aid makes a big difference for people who are struggling with both a cancer diagnosis and financial hardship.

Heartland Cancer Foundation’s mission is to provide practical and immediate financial assistance to eligible cancer patients in the community so they can focus on what matters most: healing. Thank you to the Heartland Cancer Foundation’s wonderful circle of donors and supporters that come together to care for those in our community.
