SANDPOINT — All around us, there are people who find the meaning of life by staring death full in the face.

Helen Soderberg sees it happen on a daily basis. As office manager for Community Cancer Services — a local non-profit that has been serving the region since 2002 — she works closely with people who are fighting cancer and the caregivers who accompany them in that battle.

CCS stands ready to support their personal plan of attack, whether it involves rigorous application of traditional medicine or an entirely different course of natural treatment.

“It’s a journey,” said Soderberg. “The moment you have a diagnosis of cancer, the rest of your life is changed. Our place is to be a cheerleader and love on people and help make their journey successful, no matter how they choose to take it.”
