The Lynn Cancer Institute has an expansive support program. While receiving treatment at the Lynn Cancer Institute, a patient can avail themselves of additional support resources to help both the patient and their family cope with the diagnosis and treatment of their cancer.
The oncology social workers are a group of board certified, licensed clinicians who meet with patients and families to assist in gathering community resources and to help address the emotional needs and concerns of patients and families while they are coping with a diagnosis of cancer. Our oncology social workers meet with patients and families throughout the spectrum of care starting at diagnosis through treatment and survivorship. The oncology social work team is trained to do individual, family and group counseling.
As you and your oncology social worker manage the many aspects of your cancer care, be sure to join our support programs to help you cope with your concerns and relieve feelings of isolation. All of our support groups are professionally facilitated and free of charge.
