- Support Groups
- Financial counseling
- Oncology dietitian services
- Pharmacy services
- Oncology social worker services
- Transportation assistance
- Chaplain services
- Home care
- Psychosocial support
- Palliative Care
Know that you are not alone
A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, but our cancer navigators are here to help you get through the treatment process as
smoothly and stress-free as possible. Everything you need for your cancer journey can be provided by Infirmary Cancer
Care or through our network of community resources. Our cancer navigators are compassionate guides, trusted sources of
information and advocates for you. Infirmary Health provides this complimentary service as part of our commitment
to your cancer care.
I couldn't’ imagine going though treatment without a cancer navigator by my side.
