McClendon to lead cancer network High-tech help available One organization’s loss is another’s gain.


Christy McClendon, who recently announced that she will leave Chandler’s ICAN, will go to work for The Wellness Community - Arizona (TWC-AZ) in central Phoenix as executive director.


McClendon says TWC-AZ is a chapter of the Cancer Support Network, a national nonprofi t organization dedicated to providing free emotional support, education and hope for people with cancer and their loved ones. She says she feels an “instinctive connection” to The Wellness Community – Arizona and its values.


“I began my social work career working with people facing life-threatening illnesses and was moved by the emotional and spiritual growth displayed during their journey,” she notes. “Sharing this journey with cancer survivors and their families will be a great privilege and extremely rewarding for me personally.”


She explains that people affected by cancer can learn vital skills to regain control, reduce feelings of isolation and restore hope-regardless of the stage of disease through participation in professionally led support groups, educational workshops and mind/body programs utilizing the Patient Active Concept. “The organization is also in a stage of development that aligns closely with my professional skills and interests,” she adds. “My expertise in strengthening systems, building infrastructure and leading professional development programs will be essential to The Wellness Community – Arizona at this particular moment in its organizational life-cycle. I feel fortunate to have been given this opportunity and look forward with enthusiasm to assuming the new position in August.”


She leaves ICAN after six years, and says the youth program’s systems, people, and infrastructure are “solidly built and shared by a group of caring leaders,” and “well on its way to meeting its targets for the future of Chandler’s youth,” including leading a successful capital campaign. “ICAN’s vision is shared by the Board, staff and community of supporters. I’ll miss the close collaboration that I’ve enjoyed over the past six years. But I feel confi dent that the organization as a whole is well poised for the future.”
