A diagnosis of cancer can be overwhelming. Nurse Navigators are advocates who help navigate patients and their families through each stage cancer, from diagnosis through final treatments. Patients receive crucial, individual education and support by an experienced cancer nurse from the time of biopsy throughout the course of treatment. Counseling, genetic testing, nutritional support, exercise and prevention are also provided.
