Cancer Care

A common feeling among patients diagnosed with cancer is a sense of being alone, of not being able to share their concerns, anxieties and fears, even with family and loved ones. That situation and the importance of being empowered through information and common experiences is the basis for the emphasis that Riverside Cancer Care places on education and support.

This support includes individual and highly personalized assistance with navigating the complexities of the health care system, programs that focus on the emotional needs of patients and the people at home who help provide their care, art and expressive therapies, web resources related to cancer care and a number of support groups for patients and family members and friends.

Cancer resources library

Riverside Cancer Care offers a cancer resources library for cancer patients, family or friends, and those in the community interested in cancer prevention and early detection. The library has:

  • Videos

The library is located on the first floor of the Riverside Cancer Care Center and is available free to those in need of information. Cancer Services staff members are available to assist those who visit the library.
