Isolation is an instantaneous result of a cancer diagnosis. RISE is a tool where from the moment of diagnosis, a client understands s/he is not alone. If this root of isolation never takes hold in new patients, this emotional side effect can be eliminated before it begins. This tool also fosters a truer “cancer community” where each geographic region establishes its own meaningful identity, inviting survivors and those impacted by cancer to participate and grow together. Connectivity and access to the resources in a specific region provides clients the best opportunity to eliminate fear and anxiety around cancer.
