Last month NCC launched ThriveNV.org, our companion site that focuses on caring, connection, and collaboration for Nevadans in need of cancer support and resources. It’s designed with survivors, thrivers, and caregivers in mind, but it’s for any Nevadan who’s looking to improve the lives of those affected by cancer.

ThriveNV.org combines a number of great resources all in one place.

Are you taking care of an adult relative, partner, friend or parent with cancer? Powerful Tools for Caregivers gives you the skills to take care of yourself while caring for someone else. By taking care of your own health and well-being, you become a better caregiver. We hope you walk away feeling refreshed and more confident in your role. Six class sessions held once a week are led by experienced class leaders. Class participants are given The Caregiver Helpbook to accompany the class and provide additional caregiver resources.

During the recent pandemic, most Americans have skipped or postponed important medical care. Now that social distancing measures have successfully flattened the curve, it is time to start giving your health the attention that it deserves.

For important screening exams such as mammograms, we know that early detection and treatment saves lives.
