Every person impacted by cancer reacts differently. Support and the ability to talk about your feelings, problems and concerns are important to your recovery. We are here to help during and after your treatment with coordinated counseling, expert nursing care and educational services.
We offer an American Cancer Society program, called “I Can Cope” that educates people about the physical and emotional effects of cancer.
We also provide extensive emotional and informational resources for families of cancer patients, including support groups, advice for caregivers, and more.
Cancer treatment can cause side effects. Rehabilitation focuses on improving quality of life, strength and the ability to function physically, socially and psychologically.
Wounds are rare among people who have cancer. If they do occur, we are able to provide effective treatments to reduce their size and improve symptoms.
