Further Cancer Resources and Information

The navigator program is designed to help patients and their loved ones cope during the life-changing experience that is cancer.

Doctors use tests like mammography, MRI, and CT scans to help them screen for, diagnose, and treat cancer. If you have cancer, you may have had one or more of these tests.

After your cancer diagnosis, everything in life may suddenly feel out of control. Your initial thoughts may be "How could this have happened to me?" and "How will I get through this?"

Making careful food choices will help support your immune system's fight against cancer. The foods you choose to eat during treatment will vary according to any side effects you may have.

Cancer treatment can cause a number of side effects. Learn how to cope with fatigue, loss of appetite, skin problems, and more.
