For some patients, spiritual support is an important aspect of cancer care because it includes a message of encouragement and hope through belief in a higher power which brings comfort and calm in the midst of challenging circumstances.
To address this need, we developed options for spiritual support. Prayer requests and conversations are held to the highest and strictest standards of privacy and confidentiality. To discuss opportunities to share prayer with group members or be placed on a prayer list, please let us know of your interest through our “contact us” link.
“Hush", is a song written by Giovanni Imbesi (Head of the LA support group): She commented, "Hush, featuring singer Toni Peete was written in 2006 while I was recovering from surgery for neuroendocrine carcinoid cancer. The lyrics were inspired by a very special nurse who was part of my healing team and the song is dedicated to her, Adriana Arienti. It’s meant to inspire peacefulness and quiet in the midst of frightening medical diagnoses, surgery and facing the unknown of cancer treatment." In 2014, Giovanna dedicated her song to "Songs for Life", a contest to support cancer research. Click here to hear the song.
