Patient and Family Support Services

Cancer is a complex journey for patients and families. Before cancer, life had challenges; now they may seem insurmountable. The anxieties about health, keeping up with daily activities and maintaining important, critical relationship are common for all cancer patients and their families.

Our patient and family support services are here to help our patients so they know they have someone experienced to count on when they need it. We are here to make a difference—not just in your cancer outcome—but in the moments along the way, so you and your loved ones know there is always someone to help.

For an appointment with one of our counselors, please call 716-7980.

Finding Your Way Around

The prospect of starting on chemotherapy or radiation treatments can be overwhelming for even the most knowledeable individual. Our dedicated staff members and volunteers are available to serve as guides  in the Hematology and Oncology Clinic to greet each new patient upon arrival. We explain how our program works and show patients and family members around the clinic and treatment rooms, helping to familiarize them with our resources.
