Christa Poole & Marc Stefanski - The Social

A Party With A Purpose – Helping Cancer Patients

When you have cancer, you’re in the battle of your life. And you need a variety of resources to help you beat it. But what do you do when some of those resources aren’t covered by insurance? There is help! Christa Poole from Cleveland Clinic and Marc Stefanski, Chairman and CEO of Third Federal Savings and Loan were here to tell us more.

Here are questions Hollie and Michael had for Christa and Marc:

You have an event coming up – which we’re going to talk about in a second – but first, Christa, what kinds of support services are we talking about that aren’t generally covered by insurance?

Christa, you are the Cancer Clinical Social Work Supervisor at Cleveland Clinic. Tell us about the role social workers play in helping cancer patients – and the kinds of support services Cleveland Clinic offers.

There is a fund to help finance these services – and you have an event coming up to support that. Tell us about “The Social…”

Marc – you also support patient services. Tell us Rhonda’s Kiss and why you got involved…

If you or someone you loved battled cancer, find us on social media, ‘Live on Lakeside’, and share your story.
