You could call it the best of both worlds. We call it cancer treatment the way it should be.
We live in a world both big and small.
Big in the sense that, when it comes to the treatment of cancer, we’re more connected than ever, sharing knowledge and breakthrough treatments with our counterparts around the nation.
And small because all that expertise is right where you want it – close by, at Edward’s Cancer Center.
They say you don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have. And when a loved one has cancer, it is.
You may find yourself thrust into a new role or taking on a huge new responsibility when you’re already overwhelmed. So, it’s okay to ask for help.
And, even if you don’t, St. Mary’s will offer it anyway. Because being strong doesn’t mean being alone.
When you learn for the first time that you have cancer, the world stops spinning.
But soon after, it starts spinning faster than ever, until you’re lost in a sea of appointments and decisions.
That’s why, as a patient at Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center, you’ll be assigned a nurse navigator whose job is to serve as your north star.
They’ll focus on guiding you through treatment, so you can focus on what matters most - beating cancer.
It isn’t always a roar.
Often, it’s a soft voice in the back of your mind telling you to get up, keep going, keep fighting.
And if you’re fighting breast cancer, that voice will be joined by a chorus of doctors giving you real hope in the form of state-of-the-art technology and breakthrough treatments.
However you take on cancer, be it loud or with quiet determination, know that we are in awe of your courage.
