Nancy's List - Coping with Financial Stress for Cancer Patients and Their Families

Coping with Financial Stress:

For Cancer Patients and Their Families

Join Nancy Novack, PhD, for a discussion about the financial challenges that many experience when living with cancer. 
Nancy has a unique perspective on the relentless cancer-related financial pressures both as a clinical psychologist serving hundreds of cancer patients and in her own personal life as an ovarian cancer patient. She started Nancy’s List as a tool to disseminate information about financial resources for the cancer community.
Some questions that will be addressed will include: 
  • What do I do about money when I’ve been diagnosed?
  • What do I do when bills come?
  • How do I find money in the time of Covid?
  • How can I relieve stress?
  • How can I navigate Nancy’s List of resources?

Submit your questions for Nancy with your registration, so that we may be certain to answer your special questions/concerns. You may email your questions to Kiersten at kiersten@smithcenter.org by January 11th. This program is in Eastern Standard Time.


About Nancy Novack

Nancy Novack

On the evening of my first meeting with my oncologist, he said to me, “This is a challenging diagnosis. The prognosis is bleak. But I do believe I can help you. I am with you.” Those four words sustained me whenever I was in fear. They directed my understanding of the power of relationship in my healing process. I was able to open my heart and receive the love and generosity of family and friends and oftentimes strangers who were there to hold my hand and my heart.
When people ask, and they often do, “What happened? How did you make it when so many others do not survive stage 4 ovarian cancer?” I don’t have any answers to that mystery. I do know, for certain, that the opening of my heart, the receiving of the blessings and the love, the sense of abundance of good will coming my way changed my being — during my cancer and forever more.

I am the luckiest lady in the world. I truly enjoy defying medical statistics and being the poster child for Stanford’s Cancer Center.

I made a vow to make a difference for people living with cancer, for those who love and care for them, and for the children who have a cancer diagnosis or love someone who has. My simple and profound wish is that no one will ever go through cancer alone. I started Nancy’s List to help my community cope with the epidemic of cancer.

For me, cancer changed everything. It generated my growth. It taught me the essence of gratitude. I adore the generosity of strangers. It defined my calling and refined my purpose as a psychologist. It gave me the opportunity to offer hope to those who have lost theirs. I found my courage and resilience.
