Cancer Navigator Program

Cancer Navigator Program

If you've been diagnosed with cancer and need answers and a plan, our cancer navigators can help.

What is a Cancer Navigator?

  • A Cancer Navigator is an oncology-certified nurse who works with patients, families and physicians to help the cancer patient "navigate" the healthcare system.
  • The cancer navigator does not replace your physicians.
  • Your cancer navigator assists in arranging and maintaining communication between patients and their families, as well as physicians and other healthcare professionals. This is a free service offered by the Lutheran Cancer Resource Center.

Cancer Navigator ProgramYour personal cancer navigator can help you and your family with the following:

  • Help you understand your diagnosis.
  • Explain treatment options to you so you know what to expect.
  • Assist in coordinating your appointments with physicians, if needed.
  • Provide emotional support.
  • Connect you with resources for trans- portation, medication and spiritual needs.
  • Connect you with services such as nutritional counseling, physical therapy, clinical trials, genetic testing, financial assistance, home healthcare and support groups.
  • Assist with communication between you, your family and physicians.
  • Help remove any roadblocks that may hinder your care.
  • Help you navigate the healthcare system.
