Cancer Support Groups & Staff

We have cancer support groups, programs and resources to help you through your journey.

If you're coping with cancer, we're here to help. Our counseling and support services help you navigate through the journey.

Psychologists & Social Workers

Talk privately with psychologists and licensed clinical social workers about your fears and experience with cancer. Get connected with community resources to help you deal with your situation. Your doctor or nurse can give you a referral. Learn more about counseling services at UVA Cancer Center.

Patient Navigators

A patient navigator meets with you when you're first told you have cancer. They then help you find the financial information, support groups, educational programs, nutrition, counseling and other resources you need.

Chaplains

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.

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.
