“We are so pleased to welcome Kevin and Nancy to the New Day team,” said co-founder and president Gina Kell Spehn. “They are both so respected in our community and eager to bring their resources to us. With their help, we can raise awareness of Cancer Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT) and its devastating effects on families.”
