Cancer Patient Support Program

Recognizing the unique need for a patient and family support program, the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center provides different programs to enhance the quality of life for patients and family members while they navigate the complexities of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

The Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP) is staffed by our team members and volunteers. We help patients navigate the Cancer Center, provide counseling in the hospital and in the outpatient clinic and manage educational programs and support meetings.  

A Resource Center is also available for patients and family members. We are all here to help. The key element in our program is the healing relationship that develops when one person cares for another.

Cancer treatment is a very stressful time and severe illness can bring up many topics and issues for both the patient and their loved ones. We offer individual counseling; support groups and social work support that can help patients explore their feelings, find like-minded support and manage the daily activities that seem so overwhelming during a difficult time.
