Our breast cancer patient advocates play a key role to address the needs of the whole person: mind, body and spirit. The advocates serve as personal health care navigators, helping breast cancer patients and their families find and receive the full range of services that they need.
Visit the resource room for up-to-date educational materials and a lending library. Our breast-health nurse is available for women and their family members dealing with any type of breast condition (cancerous and non-cancerous). The nurse also is available to teach breast self-examination to individuals and groups.
Individual counseling, risk assessment consultation, support groups and other supportive services also are available to our patients.
