Each year, about 15,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States. If you are one of these women, or if you are one of the women currently undergoing treatment or recovering from cervical cancer, you and your family may need additional supportive, emotional and psychological care.
The Norton Cancer Institute Resource Centers offer patients with cervical cancer and their families access to a wide range of support services. The centers house a library of educational resources about prevention and detection, treatment options and recovery. Specially trained oncology nurses are available to provide one-on-one educational counseling for patients and family members.
The centers also offer the following free services for you and your family:
- Educational seminars
- Clinical-trial searches
- Nutritional counseling
- Emotional/behavioral counseling
- Wigs, prostheses and turbans
- Massage therapy
- Art therapy
- Referrals to community resources
