BEDMINSTER, N.J. (PRWEB) March 30, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to increase feelings of stress and anxiety among people with cancer and survivors; their families; and their caregivers. Crossroads4Hope is addressing the needs of all those affected by cancer through the delivery of an innovative social and emotional support system, MyGo2Support, which meets needs of people impacted by cancer, no matter where they are in their journey and at no charge.
Crossroads4Hope is announcing the launch of MyGo2Support, developed through a unique collaboration with GoMo Health®, and with the support of the Novartis US Foundation. This telehealth platform extends cancer resources and programs of support, education, and hope into people’s home when and where they need it most. “This is a time when the community we serve needs us the most. People who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis—of their own or that of a loved one—are already experiencing heightened degrees of fear and isolation,” says Katherine Schaible, LSW, Program Director at Crossroads4Hope. “People affected by cancer often experience feelings equivalent to grief and loss, not to mention the struggles of those who are currently in bereavement after losing a loved one to the disease.”
MyGo2Support is designed to personalize engagement and support no matter where someone is on their cancer journey from diagnosis to survivorship or bereavement for affected families—taking into consideration the emotional, practical/financial, spiritual, physical, and social/environmental needs and challenges of the person. As the member’s needs elevate, MyGo2Support facilitates connection to Crossroads4Hope’s mental health and allied health professionals for further intervention.
“MyGo2Support will help transform the cancer experience, helping all those touched by cancer to move through the health crisis caused by a cancer diagnosis to become empowered to take active control of their health and wellbeing by addressing the clinical, social, and emotional needs of persons in their lived environments,” explains Amy Sutton, CEO, Crossroads4Hope.
The program leverages GoMo Health’s evidence based BehavioralRx® science to enhance activation and engagement, leading to participation in Crossroads4Hope’s programs and services., as well as greater engagement with the organization’s professionally led, evidence-based support. GoMo Health has generously donated a proprietary secure text and messaging platform for use in MyGo2Support, enabling users to directly contact Crossroads4Hope’s clinical program staff. MyGo2Support is web-based, allowing access to Crossroads4Hope’s cancer support services directly through a person’s smartphone or computer. Crossroads4Hope and the MyGo2Support Program serve people with cancer, families, caregivers, survivors, and those in bereavement at no charge.
“MyGo2Support is a major breakthrough enabling providers and health plans to deliver interdisciplinary behavioral and physical care by bundling an evidence-based social and emotional program with the oncologist’s treatment plan,” says Bob Gold, CEO of GoMo Health.
