Roper St. Francis Cancer Care believes that support services are integral to your healing. Cancer can take a toll emotionally, spiritually, financially, as well as physically. We encourage patients and their families to use our support services, and to let us know if there are additional ways we can assist on your cancer journey.
The goal of the Donna Fielding Cancer Wellness Institute is simple, while its results are life-changing: we exist to support all of our cancer patients’ needs – mind, body and spirit.
The patient navigator serves as a central point of contact for our patients. They help them more thoroughly understand their diagnosis, direct them to resources and are a source of continuous support. Navigators can be found doing everything from educating patients on how to handle side effects to supporting a patient at a wig fitting.
The Healing Boutique offers specialty products for cancer patients. It also has a certified post-mastectomy fitter, a licensed cosmetologist to help with hair replacement needs and provider-recommended books and resources.
Cancer Support Groups
We offer several support groups such as S.A.S.S.Y. Breast Cancer Support Group and other cancer site specific support groups. We also offer our unique Expressions of Healing course that promotes coping and healing through the creative arts. View our calendar for upcoming meetings.
