About Life with Cancer at Inova Schar Cancer

All proceeds from RUN! GEEK! RUN! will go directly to support Life with Cancer at Inova Schar Cancer.

For more than forty years, Life with Cancer at Inova Schar Cancer has offered psychosocial support and education including integrative therapies, wellness programs, groups and classes for patients and their families both during and after cancer treatment. Based on an evidence-based, integrative approach, certified skilled oncology nurses and licenses therapists provide support throughout the continuum of care. Life with Cancer relies on philanthropy and our services are available to the entire community, at no cost to participants.

We serve patients, caregivers and families at all stages of their cancer journey: newly diagnosed, in treatment, chronic and advanced disease, after treatment, survivorship, end of life and for those who are grieving. Our services are available to anyone impacted by cancer – patients and their friends and families, are always free of charge.

The Life with Cancer team delivers more than 200 programs each month at our welcoming Dewberry Family Center (aka Carolyn’s House) and at Inova Schar Cancer locations across the region in Fairfax, Fair Oaks, Leesburg and Alexandria. Programs are offered in-person and virtually, weekdays and weeknights, and occasionally on weekends.
