“They are gifts from God. If I felt bad when I went for treatments, they encouraged and supported me so I felt good when I left. I knew in my heart that this is exactly where I was supposed to be.”
It’s important to be surrounded by people who support you through your journey. Our team of experts in oncology is here to provide you and your family with psychological and emotional support during this time in your life.
People entering the complex world of cancer care face challenges that can leave them feeling overwhelmed, afraid and alone. Sometimes talking to even the most supportive family members and friends may be difficult. Reaching out to others can provide emotional strength and support to help you live with cancer.
