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.
