Patient and Visitor Guide

Hearing the words, “You have cancer,” can overwhelm even the most prepared individual.

But we have even more powerful words: “We’re here for you, every step of the way.”

That’s more than just a statement; it’s our commitment to you. Every person on your care team is dedicated to you throughout your cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.

We encourage you to be proactive about your treatment as soon as you are diagnosed. It will help you feel more in control of your situation, which is very important as you progress through your journey. That includes asking your care team questions, educating yourself as much as you choose about your type of cancer, and seeking fellowship from one of our cancer support groups.
