Cancer Patient Navigators

A cancer diagnosis comes with many unanswered questions and concerns. We are here to guide you during every stage of your diagnosis, but we encourage patients to contact us soon after they learn they have cancer so we can begin helping right away.

How your Cancer Patient Navigator can help
Our nurse navigators work directly with the patient and family to develop a program of support that is designed to meet their specific needs. The navigators are able to:

  • Provide information and support at the time of a new diagnosis, recurrence or end of life.
  • Serve as a knowledgeable clinical resource on many issues, including symptom management and family support needs.
  • Be a familiar, consistent source of support between treatment settings (surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, doctor’s office, hospital, clinic)


Is there a cost for the program?
The Cancer Patient Navigation Programs is completely free of charge.

You may self-refer into the Cancer Patient Navigation Program. To contact a nurse navigator to get started or for more information about the program call (843) 727-8524.
