One of the greatest resources cancer patients and caregivers have at their disposal is a social worker. You can find social workers in hospitals, treatment centers and clinics. Social workers can:

 

  • Access information to help you understand your diagnosis and treatment plan

  • Educate you and teach you new coping skills

  • Link you to essential resources* within the community

  • Counsel you and your caregiver(s) if support and assistance is needed

 

* financial assistance, support groups, local organizations

 

We encourage you to seek the assistance of a social worker at your hospital, treatment center, oncologist offices and/or clinics, to support you and your need for resources in the Valley.

 

Below are links to some of the organizations our members have used and shared.
