Research the selected agency, and using the following *headings, discuss:1.Name of agency and why you selected this agency; I chose the Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center located in Waterbury, CT. I selected this agency because there has been a lot of patients I have cared for lately with a new diagnosis of some type of cancer. It is overwhelming for the patient as well at the family members. A lot of the family members look for the nurse for advice and questions but I think it is important for them to join a support group to voice their feelings and concerns especially upon discharge. 2.Brief history and mission of the agency;This agency opened in 2002 as a comprehensive cancer center providing support services to cancer patients and families in Waterbury. They are partnered with the hospital that I work for (which I did not know) and another local hospital in town. “We are grateful for the vision, talent, energy, commitment and financial generosity that has made it possible for us to pursue our singular goal: serving cancer patients and their families”[ CITATION Thend1 \l 1033 ].
