Patient Navigator

Are you unsure about where to begin with your cancer journey? Between medical terms and hours of research, we understand that cancer can be complex and overwhelming. Our patient navigators are available to help you and your family navigate your cancer journey every step of the way.

Serving as your confidant, your friend, and your guide, patient navigators offer advice, support and direction and ensure that you have the resources you need to make the most informed decisions and receive the best possible care.

Your patient navigator will also assist with:

  • Providing support and guidance prior to diagnosis, during treatment, and after treatment
  • Education, understanding treatment options, managing potential side effects and symptom management
  • Assistance with community resources such as
    • Arranging transportation to and from appointments
    • Accommodations for out-of-town guests at conveniently located hotels at discounted rates
    • Financial questions and resources
    • Communication with children and other family members
