Learning About Cancer

Whether it's at diagnosis, during cancer treatment, survivorship or if you're living with advanced cancer, you and your family will need to learn more about your cancer

We are committed to empowering you and your family and caregiver (s) to become active partners in your health care, allowing you to make informed decisions about treatment and recovery options.

Our services include:

  • a multi-media library (the Patient Family Education Resource Center to help answer patients' questions
  • online information guides listing sources relating to specific cancer diagnosis or issue
  • a hand-on skills lab to teach many of the common tasks of home cancer treatment
  • a "toolbox" of resources
  • events for patients and family members which include support groups and educational seminars
