Support and Counseling for Cancer Patients

A cancer diagnosis and treatment journey brings stress to both you and your family. Our specially trained oncology social workers provide counseling, support groups, and education to help you and your loved ones navigate your cancer experience. 

We can also assist with referrals to outside counseling and community services, when needed, as well as workplace and school education and consultation.

Our team will help you:

  • Understand your diagnosis and treatments
  • Cope with the many emotions you may be experiencing, such as sadness, anger, worry, and fear
  • Consider decisions about treatment options as you think about your work, family, and other things in your life
  • Talk with your doctor and other caregivers
  • Talk with your family, friends, or co-workers
  • Understand how cancer affects sex, intimacy, fertility, and feeling good about your body
  • Apply for programs that offer financial assistance
  • Connect with community resources such as transportation to and from medical care, temporary housing during treatment, and help at home
  • Plan for your care with the use of advance directives
  • Learn about life as a cancer survivor
