‘I Can Cope’ to bring hope to those with cancer, loved ones

October 10, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Jefferson unit of The American Cancer Society (ACS) is sponsoring another session of “I Can Cope,” to be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20 at the IUP-Punxsutawney Campus on Center Street.

"I Can Cope is the largest single free educational program for adults facing cancer, either personally, or as a friend or family caregiver within the year," said Peg Henninger, R.T.

Henninger said the ACS has been doing this for nine years.

"We've done so well with it because our committee just gels together," she said.
