Without a question, juggling the demands of cancer treatment without help from family or friends can be challenging. In addition to much-needed emotional support, caregivers provide transportation to and from treatment sessions and help with housework, grocery shopping, and other personal affairs.
Baylor Scott & White Cancer Institute strongly believe our patients should never have to fight cancer alone - so we do all we can to support our patient caregivers. In addition to moral support, we offer caregivers access to our formal support groups. We also open our on-site exercise classes to caregivers, affording them a meaningful opportunity to release stress while waiting for patients undergoing therapy.
Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be confusing and upsetting. You have to make important decisions at a time when you may feel overwhelmed. A good first step toward making the choice of where to seek care is learning more about your particular cancer, the range of treatment options that may be available and the physicians best qualified to treat your disease.
More than half of the patients with cancer today will be cured but getting the proper treatment early is critical. In most cases, decisions do not need to be made within a day or two of finding out you have cancer and taking time to determine the best course of treatment will not affect the outcome of your disease.
Your first step should be to find the right cancer specialist and treatment facility - and we are more than happy to consult with you and answer your questions at BSW Cancer Institute.
