Show Notes:

Joining show host Rev. Percy McCray in the virtual HHI studio is Courtney Lewis, who manages the community outreach team for City of Hope. Courtney’s team was formed organically, after input from the Cancer Fighter community, to provide a concierge-level service to help individuals address cancer-related questions and navigate the health care system.

In this discussion, Courtney provides insights to the work of her team.

“There’s value in providing not just education, but tools, systems, and advocacy,” she says. “What can we do to help you live the life that you imagine when you lay your head down on the pillow on a tough day?”

Courtney also provides inspirational reflections about her Jewish culture and traditions that enable her to sustain her energy and focus.

  • “These folks’ [CEOT team members] lives are intertwined with the lives of those that they touch base with every day.”
