Patient Resources

Our support groups and classes provide a way to connect with others who are going through similar experiences. We host a variety of groups that offer both peer support and professional guidance, some that are run by members of our Patient Support staff and others by members of the community. Most of these groups and classes are held in our first-floor conference rooms.

Our current offerings include:

  • Art Therapy: Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
  • Colorectal Support: second Tuesday of the month, 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
  • Gentle Yoga: Thursdays, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
  • Living Beyond Cancer: first and third Wednesdays of the month, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
  • Men to Men Prostate Group: third Wednesday of the month, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
  • Women with Cancer: second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

If you have questions about our support group offerings, call 425-297-5507.

We often offer cancer-related special events, such as guest speakers and art shows. We also support certain community events, like the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Check this page quarterly for upcoming events.

Along with all the other concerns you’re likely to have, you may worry about the cost of your care and what your insurance will cover. We accept most health insurance plans and bill them directly. Financial assistance is available through both Providence and Optum. Reach out to Patient Support Services at 425-297-6851 and make an appointment with one of our social workers to learn more.

When you’ve been a cancer patient yourself, you may want to share what you’ve learned with others going through a similar experience. Volunteering can be a great way to help.

For example, you can work in our Cancer Resource Center as a volunteer and help patients pick out a free wig, learn about their type of cancer and potential side effects, or share community resources. You can also help by bringing an activity cart with puzzles, games and blankets to patients who are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy. 

We accept volunteer applications several times a year. To learn more, call 425-261-4580 or 425-261-4583.
