The staff at the Cancer Center understands that cancer can present challenges in many aspects of your life. A social worker is available to all patients undergoing cancer treatment at our facility.
The social worker can assist you in finding resources in many different areas such as financial, transportation or care giving needs.
The Cancer Center offers two free support groups. The support group for individuals living with cancer is held in the Cancer Center conference room twice a month. The sessions are held on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
The support group for families living with cancer is held in the Cancer Center radiation waiting area once each month on the first Wednesday from 2:30 to 4 p.m. For additional information, or to register for the group, call (503) 435-6590 x8740.
