got Cancer? call LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigation Services

 

Navigating your way through a diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming, confusing and downright scary- and that’s a GROSS understatement.  To help cancer patients & their loved ones make sense of it all, some hospitals & private oncology practices now have “Oncology Navigators” on staff. Oncology Navigators literally help patients navigate their way through a diagnosis of cancer. They’re skilled in overcoming obstacles to treatment so patients can get the best care possible.

 

Sounds great, right?!  It is… but what if the hospital or doctor’s practice where you’re receiving treatment doesn’t offer the services of an Oncology Navigator?  Or what if you want to work with a different navigator than the one you’ve been assigned to?  Then what????

    Robyn, thank you for sharing this resource. I have supported LiveStrong but honestly had no idea where the money was going. I am amazed at what they are doing. The whole concept of navigators is amazing. Just some one to hold your hand and try to make sense of everything at a time when it seems like nothing makes any sense. Thank you for all you are doing for the cancer community and to ensure that we will never give up and no one fights alone.
