cancer patient visits their oncologist for the first time,
it can be a source of great stress and anxiety. Our licensed
oncology social workers are available to meet with patients
and caregivers to determine challenges that may be faced
during treatment and address those that can be lessened or
avoided with our assistance. All too often, the physical
effects of cancer are only a part of the whole picture. Our
social workers are advocates who may be called on as often
as necessary on the journey toward recovery.
Hope Cancer Resources is able to provide assistance at no
cost to patients diagnosed with cancer who are living in or
being treated in our four-county service area of Benton,
Carroll, Madison and Washington.
Counseling, supportive emotional sessions and support groups
are available to patients, caregivers and family members who
wish to discuss issues related to their cancer diagnosis.
These services are provided by licensed social workers, two
of whom are fluent in both English and Spanish. Click here to
