How We Can Support You

While we offer expert treatment for your disease, we place equal emphasis on your well-being throughout your journey with us. We treat the whole patient, which means offering services that allow you to express your fears in a confidential environment, improve your self confidence, guide you in terms of diet and nutrition, manage your pain, educate you about your condition and more.

We offer support services for:

Flourish, a Positive Image Boutique

The self-confidence and body image of patients during treatments, especially those that result in hair loss or disfiguring surgery, can often be compromised. Flourish, located near the lobby of the Emily Couric Clinical Cancer Center, is a boutique that offers individual consultation on wigs, custom clothing and devices that help you look your best during and after treatments. Learn more about Flourish Boutique.

Patient Education

You and your caregivers can meet with patient educators to learn more about your disease. Meet with a patient educator and access valuable tools and resources at our Learning Resource Center.
