A diagnosis of cancer can change your life in an instant. Cancer diagnosis and treatment are frequently accompanied by a wide range of emotions, including anger, anxiety, fear or depression. These feelings are normal and are experienced to a greater or lesser degree by patients and those who care for them. We know from experience that education, support and complementary modalities can be helpful in managing strong emotions and gaining the greatest benefit from cancer care.

At the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center there are various support programs available to patients and their families during and after treatment. These services are designed to enhance treatments that can help patients and their families cope with and understand the emotional challenges associated with cancer care and its potential side effects. There is no fee for these services, they are included as part of your cancer treatment.
