People with cancer may worry about caring for their families, keeping their jobs, medical bills or continuing daily activities. Concerns about tests, treatments, hospital stays, nutrition, and overall health are also common.
Doctors, nurses, or other members of your health care team may be able to help with some of these concerns. It may also be helpful to meet with a counselor, social worker, dietician, chaplain, or other member of our CompleteLife Program to better achieve emotional, social, spiritual, and physical well-being. Support for children with cancer, a smoking cessation program, financial counseling, and a patient resource center are also available.
