The CINDY Program
When faced with the diagnosis of cancer there are many questions, emotions, choices, decisions and challenges that arise for the patient and their loved ones.
The Bertuch family experienced this first hand when their daughter, Cindy Rosencrans, was diagnosed with breast cancer. They also discovered the benefits of advanced planning and end-of-life care, when her disease was identified as incurable. To assure that opportunities are available for others from diagnosis to end-of-life, the CINDY Bertuch Rosencrans Life Expressions Program was created as part of Lynn Cancer Institute’s (LCI) support services. Regardless of the stage of the disease, each diagnosed person and their family has individual personal needs and wants for the present and future.
As an extension of the LCI support services, the CINDY Program meets the emotional, personal, educational and logistical needs of an individual and their family at all phases of diagnosis and treatment, with an emphasis on supporting the end-of-life process. The CINDY Program also offers the CLIMB® support group for children of cancer patients. The CLIMB program is a component of the Lynn Cancer Institute’s HUGS (Helping U Get Support) Program, which is a comprehensive effort to support children and teens whose parents have cancer.
