Cancer Resource Center

Questions, concerns, worries, fears and hopes are all part of the process when someone is diagnosed with cancer. Patients may find it difficult to navigate through treatment and process all of the information provided during this challenging time. The onsite Cancer Resource Center team is here to provide a wide range of support to patients receiving care at the Marshall Cancer Center. Our oncology nurse navigator, dietitian, social worker, and cancer resource specialists provide education and answer questions about treatment and nutrition, address financial concerns, offer psycho-social support, and connect patients and caregivers with resources for everything in between.

Call us at 530-672-7050 for information.
