Support Resources

We understand the importance of comprehensive care. We strive to provide you with the medical and emotional support you need before, during and after treatment. We know receiving a diagnosis of cancer can be frightening and confusing, and the more individuals you have in your corner, the better. As an integral part of the Providence Cancer Center, we offer our patients many resources, such as a naturopathic physician, nurse navigator, licensed social worker, physical and occupational therapists, dietitian, survivorship care plan and state of the art technology that can deliver radiotherapy in a painless way. Below is a list of resources which our patients have told us they found helpful in their cancer journey.
