Triage Cancer

Patient Leader

Joanna Morales is the CEO of Triage Cancer. Triage Cancer is a national, nonprofit organization that provides education on the practical and legal issues that may impact individuals diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers, through events, materials, and resources. A cancer diagnosis can be a life altering event, not only for the individual diagnosed, but also for an individual’s family, friends, caregivers, and community of support. Triage Cancer helps people move beyond diagnosis. When someone is dealing with a cancer diagnosis there is information to learn, things that need to be dealt with, and decisions to make. Trying to juggle it all can be incredibly overwhelming. Our goal is to provide access to quality information about all types of cancer survivorship issues that may arise after a diagnosis. Armed with that information, individuals not only get the big picture, but can better decide what needs to be handled first and what can wait until later – the very definition of triaging. The concerns of an individual may change over time. When newly diagnosed, concerns might be focused on treatment options and health insurance coverage. During treatment, issues related to managing treatment side effects, nutrition, and employment may arise. After completing treatment, concerns may shift towards survivorship care planning, relationship issues, and managing finances. Triage Cancer works to address cancer-related health disparities through the delivery of cancer survivorship education and collaborative advocacy efforts.
