Cancer treatment is a very stressful time and severe illness can bring up many topics and issues for both the patient and their loved ones. The Cancer Patient Support Program offers individual counseling; support groups and social work support that can help patients explore their feelings, find like-minded support and manage the daily activities that seem so overwhelming during a difficult time.

Recognizing the unique need for a patient and family support program, the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center provides different programs to enhance the quality of life for patients and family members while they navigate the complexities of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
