For Current Patients

We have programs and resources to help you through your journey.


Chaplains provide interfaith support and services, and, regardless of religious or spiritual preference, are a source of great care and understanding to patients and families during difficult times. Learn more about chaplaincy services.


Licensed clinical social workers are available to patients and their families or caregivers at all points during treatment. Additionally, social workers manage support groups for certain types of cancer. Learn more about counseling services at UVA Cancer Center.

We also have information on talking to kids about cancer.

Nutrition Guidance

Learn about nutrition and cancer, ways to eat right that will help reduce side effects and find out other important details about how treatments can impact your digestive system.

Pain Management

You don't have to suffer without relief. Managing pain is a complicated but important aspect of cancer care. UVA Cancer Center ensures the comfort of every patient and has a team of palliative care doctors who provide pain management services and other measures of support.

Managing the side effects of treatment is difficult. We offer support for both patients and families who are in the process of learning how to manage cancer treatment side effects.

Financial Services

Our dedicated financial coordinators can help cancer patients figure out paying for treatments during this tough time. Get help with applying for financial aid or have your questions answered with our free financial services.
