Patients and Families

Every cancer is different, just as every patient is different. Your cancer care team will develop a treatment plan that addresses your cancer and your life circumstances.

It is natural for patients, their caregivers and families to experience a wide range of emotions and have questions on what to expect, support and symptoms.
