Having Cancer is Hard. Finding Help Shouldn’t Be.
We don’t want anyone to feel that they have to fight cancer alone. That is why we partnered with the American Cancer Society to create the Cancer Resource Center to help patients face and conquer their non medical challenges related to a cancer diagnosis.
The Cancer Resource Center is a partnership between the American Cancer Society and St. Elizabeth Healthcare.
The Cancer Resource Center is a vital link in the entire cancer experience, not only for those diagnosed, but also for their families and caregivers. Cancer Resource Centers are typically located within cancer treatment facilities, with the goal of furnishing their patrons with the most up-to-date information possible about their individual cancer and resources available to them.
The Center is staffed by volunteers, who have been both recruited and trained by the American Cancer Society and St. Elizabeth Healthcare.
What is a Cancer Resource Center (CRC)?
An American Cancer Society Cancer Resource Center is a designated space within the treatment facility where trained and certified volunteers provide support to cancer patients, their family members, and caregivers. Volunteers provide patients with vital information for understanding cancer, managing day to day through treatment and recovery, and finding the emotional support they need.
