TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis announced that the Florida Cancer Connect website is being updated to include a fully translated Spanish version and testimonials from Hispanic cancer survivors, premiering over the next month.
“Florida Cancer Connect is an extension of our longstanding commitment to all Floridians impacted by cancer,” DeSantis said. “Our goal is to make cancer resources user friendly, which is why I’m excited to announce the addition of readily available Spanish resources to increase the accessibility of support to those in the cancer fight looking for help and hope.”
Cancer Connect is an initiative created by the Florida First Lady that aims to provide Floridians information on cancer treatment, caregiver tools and stories from others fighting, and surviving, cancer.
“When I was going through my cancer fight, I saw the need for a centralized hub that housed everything patients and caretakers could need while dealing with this disease,” DeSantis said.
The Florida Cancer Connect website helps viewers understand cancer research and prevention programs, locate a health care provider specializing in cancer care, navigate the complexities of cancer related insurance coverage, obtain caregiver resources, and hear from Floridians who have fought the disease.
“Floridians across our state have been impacted by cancer in some way, whether it be from their own battle or that of a loved one. Florida Cancer Connect will serve as an excellent resource for all Florida families to find the knowledge, help, and support they need no matter where they are in their cancer journey,” said Agency for Health Care Administration Secretary Simone Marstiller.
Florida is second in the nation for newly diagnosed cancer cases. Survivor stories will be added on the website over time. Floridians interested in sharing their survivor story can reach out via email to: [email protected].
