The Gynecological Cancer Awareness Project

The Gynecological Cancer Awareness Project

Hello, I am John Rinaldi -


My reason for volunteering with GCAP is that my wife has recurrent ovarian cancer.  GCAP has been extremely supportive of our family throughout this entire ordeal.  GCAP is a major resource for many women who are also dealing with women's cancers.


The support group is my favorite because it allows, not only the patient, but also allows the caregiver a place to express feelings and share situations with others dealing with women's cancer. Retired UNM professor in counselor education ( 30 years).  My education includes a BS from the College of St. Joseph, a Masters and Doctorate from Texas Tech University, and numerous post graduate CEUs in the field of counseling, family law, and addictions.  I also have a private practice in counseling and mediation.
