I will never forget the calm that came upon me when I met her and left the resource center. I knew I had a sanctuary to go to for all my questions.

Identify and discuss expectations for cancer experience

A cancer diagnosis can disrupt daily life.  Patient navigators can address employment concerns, mobility, how to manage the household, parenting while in treatment, and pet care needs.  Being diagnosed with breast cancer and having treatment can affect your mental health by bringing on a range of emotions. Your patient navigator, survivors themselves, can help you address these emotions with one-on-one support, ways to cope, and resources.
