Caring

OUR PROGRAM AND SERVICES

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.  

After a cancer diagnosis, it’s natural to have questions – lots of them. We encourage you to call us for a personal visit with one of our compassionate and licensed health professionals

You also can visit our online health library’s cancer center for the facts on different types of cancers, diagnostic tests, treatments and more.

Let's look at the services and resources available...

PATIENT NAVIGATION

The cancer treatment process can be confusing and overwhelming. Our specially trained patient navigators work closely with you to share information, interpret treatment plans and answer questions you and your family may have. They can also help connect you with other helpful resources.

 

We can help guide you through and around barriers in the complex cancer care system to help ensure timely diagnosis, treatment, and support. This is also critical to survival and early detection, and the medical community in the U.S. is seeing huge successes through patient navigation programs.

We want to help overcome the barriers of cost, fear, and misinformation surrounding the disease and its prevention.

SPIRITUAL CARE

As a health care organization, we’re devoted to providing spiritual care to those we serve. We believe this support encourages hope and fosters strength and healing.

 

Our spiritual care team is happy to visit with you, offer prayers with you or on your behalf and provide other services as needed.

CULTURAL SUPPORT

 

We host a monthly support group where our support group facilitator works with cancer survivors during "caring and sharing" time to encourage healthy dialogue and education for everyone involved.

We integrate traditional and cultural knowing .....................................

Having the support of others is an important part of breast cancer survivorship.

 

Research shows that taking part in support groups, where you both give and receive help, is an effective way to reduce the stress and anxiety that can come with a breast cancer diagnosis.
