Cancer support services
When you receive cancer treatment at one of our hospitals, we not only focus on treating the cancer but also your overall health. Cancer support services we offer include:
- Genetic counseling
- Mental health services
- Nurse navigation
- Nutrition services
- Oncology rehabilitation
- Pain and symptom management specialists
- Palliative care
- Support groups
Cancer treatment can cause adverse symptoms that may be difficult to cope with. We help with this by providing comprehensive rehabilitation services before, during and after treatment. We also provide lymphedema therapy and pelvic floor rehabilitation.
Cancer support groups
It's important to have a network of people around you to offer support and encouragement during your cancer journey. Your nurse navigator can help you find support groups in your area. One resource they may recommend is the American Cancer Society.
Young women's gynecologic cancer support group
We offer a support group at St. David's North Austin Medical Center specifically designed for young women who are diagnosed with gynecologic cancer. The group takes place on the second Thursday of every month from 6:00pm to 7:15pm.
