Cancer may be the toughest thing that you and your family ever have to fight. Between the actual disease, the aggressive treatments and the side effects of those treatments, cancer can truly take a toll on your emotional and physical health. Please make sure to talk with your multidisciplinary team to help you through all of these effects, and especially, our trained and caring social workers to help you through the emotional effects of cancer.

Caregiver Support

The patient is not the only one fighting the battle against cancer. Their family, their friends and their caregivers are also fighting the battle. There are many challenges to being a caregiver for a cancer patient including, but not limited to, managing the patient’s medicines, taking care of the patient, communicating with the team and the legal and financial issues that sometimes come with battling cancer.

Make sure to look into resources and support for caregivers that will help you get through this difficult time so you can be a strong support system for the cancer patient while taking care of yourself at the same time. Visit our Strecker Cancer Center Resources page for guidance.

Support Groups

Come to our support group meetings. Our updated schedule is in Strecker Thrive at the beginning of every month.

Financial Services

One thing that we do not want our patients or families to worry about during cancer treatment is how they are going to pay for it. Memorial Health System has different financial options for patients.
