Patient & Family

Providing support for you and your family.

Cancer is more than a diagnosis and treatment. It can bring many other challenges along with it. To help you and your loved ones cope with those challenges the Community Cancer Center has an oncology social worker on staff. She can assist you with various aspects of your cancer journey. From helping address financial concerns, to assisting with advance directives, or just providing a listening ear. Our oncology social worker will be there from your diagnosis all the way through survivorship.
