1440 Multiversity is committed to supporting the care given to patients fighting a life-threatening disease or serious chronic illness. We help connect those seeking to manage their care and maintain or improve their quality of life with those committed to their whole person healing, not just attending to the disease itself.
The physical and emotional effects of cancer and other diseases, including treatments, may be very different from person to person. We believe this work provides comfort and support to patients, along with palliative care specialists such as doctors, nurses, registered dieticians, pharmacists, chaplains, psychologists and social workers. Support is enhanced by raising awareness to the importance of holistic care for the patient, their family and caregivers, who all face the physical, emotional, social and spiritual issues and side effects of the cancer experience or that of other life-threatening diseases. Grant funding and individual scholarships are provided to all who support or wish to collaborate in this critical work of creating hope for living well. Contact 1440 if you are interested in hosting a program on our campus the approaches this important topic.
