No matter the stage or the prognosis, a cancer diagnosis completely changes your life. At Nebraska Cancer Specialists, we are dedicated to making the process- from treatment through recovery- go as smoothly as possible for you. We have many services to help support you and your caregivers.
People will want to help you. Here are some ways to let them.
Patients are receiving more effective therapies and achieving higher success rates. But while outcomes are improving, science has yet to find a way to treat cancer without side effects.
When it comes to managing side effects, we won’t let you face them alone. There are appearance-enhancement programs designed to help you cope with and overcome some of the physical side effects of cancer treatment. Clinical cosmetologists, certified breast prosthesis fitters and massage therapists have been trained to provide services especially for cancer patients. A member of the Nebraska Cancer Specialists’ staff can recommend and direct you to a provider of support services to meet your individual needs.
CaringBridge offers free, personalized websites to people facing various medical conditions, hospitalization, medical treatment, and/or recovery from a significant accident, illness, injury, or procedure. The purpose of the site is to allow family members and friends to receive information about a particular individual. Individuals can create their own personal website to share with others or visitors can read updates on individuals or post messages to the family.
