Patient and Family Support Services Program

Helping You and Your Family Adjust to Life with Cancer

Providing the right support for cancer patients and their families starts with treating them like a part of our own family. That's the commitment of the Patient and Family Support Services Program.

Just as we pursue a multidisciplinary approach when treating cancer, we take the same approach when supporting patients during treatment. That means a patient's support team includes not only the finest doctors and nurses, but cancer specialists in psychology, social work, art therapy, nutrition, finance and countless other areas. This support is fully integrated into the patient's treatment plan because we know that cancer afflicts not only the organs of the body, but the whole person and the whole family.
