“e+CancerCare has a unique approach that helps patients access best-in-class care in their local community – close to their family, their support systems and potentially, their livelihood,” said Sandra Fathi, president of Affect. “Although a diagnosis of cancer can be devastating news, treatments today offer patients a wide array of options to continue to lead healthy and productive lives while they are fighting this disease and when they have the proper support in place, the prognosis can be positive. The e+CancerCare team inspired us with their mission and heartfelt approach to healing patients. We are proud to represent them and help shine a spotlight on the amazing work they are doing in communities across the country.”

e+CancerCare has been providing outpatient cancer services to patients for more than 10 years. It has a network of 24 partnership locations and continues to expand throughout the United States.

Affect will work with executives at e+CancerCare’s headquarters as well as representatives from its 24 centers to increase awareness about community health initiatives. The public relations program will also leverage e+CancerCare’s leadership expertise in comprehensive cancer care to further the company’s brand recognition among industry and business media.

“We were searching for a PR partner that could effectively help us establish e+CancerCare’s comprehensive care model as the new treatment paradigm,” said Amy Radcliff, president and chief operating officer at e+CancerCare. “We immediately saw the ROI with Affect – they are communicating our company story and expertise in cancer care on a national scale and supporting our local community initiatives as well.”
