Don Wood is volunteer extraordinaire and the current co-chair for the Cancer Strategic Clinical Network (C-SCN) Alberta Cancer Diagnosis Initiative (ACDI) and a member of the Core SCN Committee for Alberta Health Services. After his wife passed away from a hard-fought battle with cancer, Don made it his mission to help others to try and make the health care world a better place for those who would come there after him. He's had an active role in the new Calgary Cancer Centre, and in our talk here he gives us a tease of the new space, talks about his own journey as an unplanned caregiver and what you can best do to support your loved one during times of great hardship.
