“It is an honor to help patients and their families build faith and regain hope on a journey that could be the fight of their lives,” says Reverend Earl Grandberry, a chaplain at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in north suburban Chicago.
Rev. Grandberry earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He then completed a master’s degree in theology, biblical literature and pastoral care at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa. In addition, he has completed post-graduate training in mood disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and violence prevention.
During his education, Rev. Grandberry worked as a teaching assistant at the School of Theology and Ministry at Oral Roberts University. Prior to joining CTCA in 2014, he served as a chaplain at large medical centers in Oklahoma, where he also completed two clinical pastoral education residencies.
Rev. Grandberry is a member of the Board of Directors for the Bessie Kates Foundation and is an ordained and licensed associate pastor for True Rock Ministries in Chicago.
At CTCA, Rev. Grandberry provides emotional and spiritual support to patients undergoing cancer treatment. His goal is to empower patients with a sense of ownership about their care and quality of life. “I am grateful to work at an organization that cares for others as I would care for my own family,” says Rev. Grandberry.
