Austin Morreale, Community Engagement Coordinator
Joel T. Nowak, MA, MSW is a co-founder of Cancer ABCs. He is a Cancer Thriver who has five different primary cancer diagnoses including: Thyroid, Renal, Metastatic Prostate, Appendiceal Cancers and Melanoma. Despite this, he is often heard telling people that he is a healthy man. He attributes his good health to his ability to be responsible, along with his medical teams for his own, personal health decisions.
The work of NJ Interfaith Center for Cancer Care responds to the complexity of cancer in our families and communities through individual, congregational, and systemic engagement, support, and advocacy.
