Supporting Patients, Caregivers, & Loved Ones

When a person is diagnosed with cancer, concerns about treatments and side effects, hospital stays, and medical bills are common. Patients and their loved ones may also worry about caring for their family, working, and managing daily life.

Your health care team can answer your questions and talk to you about any concerns. They can help with side effects and keep you informed of all your treatments, test results, and future doctor visits.

Huntsman Cancer Institute offers many ways to support patients, caregivers, and loved ones.
