“We know what we are but know not what we may be.”
People who have received a cancer diagnosis (40% of the American population at some time in their lives) are undergoing a blow to their mental and emotional stability unlike any other. And yet, as Dr. Nancy E. Adler says in Cancer Care for the Whole Patient, “Both patients and providers tell us that attention to psycho-social health needs is the exception rather than the rule in oncology practice today.” Recognizing that need, Kentucky Shakespeare has launched programming serving those impacted by cancer at Gilda’s Club.
Kentucky Shakespeare’s work provides a safe place for creative and emotional expression, resulting in an environment of learning, teamwork, and, most importantly, community.
2020 Gilda’s Club programming made possible by Arts for All Kentucky.
