Breast Cancer Program
Journey of Healing
Hearing that you have breast cancer is very scary. It is not something you planned for or probably ever expected to happen to you. Now you have to make decisions about your medical care when the last word you may have heard was “cancer”. It is normal to feel overwhelmed and confused. We want to help.
We have a complimentary notebook to give to you that will:
- Help explain your diagnosis
- Give definitions for the many new medical terms that you will be learning
- Provide some basic information about the different treatments that may be used during your care
Additional educational information will be given to you, as well, based on your own specific questions.
The book can also be used as a log book to keep up with all your:
- Phone Numbers
- Appointment Dates
- The questions that you want to ask at your next appointment
As part of our complimentary service of providing you with your own copy of the Journey of Healing notebook, you will meet with one of our Breast Health Nurses who will go over the notebook with you and answer any questions you may have. Also, the nurse will continue to follow you over the course of your treatment to be able to answer any new questions that may come up or just provide a listening ear and a little hand holding. You are always welcome to contact her anytime you need some help or information.
If you would like to schedule some time to meet with the Breast Health Nurse, please call (256) 265-2293. She will be happy to answer any questions that you may have about our Journey of Healing program or set you up to spend some time talking to you about your diagnosis.
