At Gibson Cancer Center, we realize that a cancer diagnosis can be devastating physically, emotionally, and financially. Therefore, we have programs in place to assist our patients in coping with these three aspects of a cancer diagnosis.
Gibson Cancer Center offers two support groups where those living with cancer can garner support from their fellow survivors.
- The General Cancer Support Group is for anyone who has a cancer diagnosis regardless of type of cancer or gender. Support is provided to cancer survivors and their caregivers. The group meets the first Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. at Gibson Cancer Center.
- The Unique Surviving Sisters Support Group provides support to all women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or other cancers of the reproductive system. The group meets the first Tuesday of each month at Noon at the Gibson Cancer Center.
Gibson Cancer Center Resources
Turbans, scarves and hats are available through generous donations by various churches in our community.
Terrific Tuesday is held the first Tuesday of each month from 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m. for patients and their caregivers. Free massages, manicures, haircuts and refreshments are available.
Social Work and Pastoral Care
Gibson Cancer Center also has an Oncology Social Worker and a volunteer member of our local clergy on site to help alleviate the stresses that may be associated with a cancer diagnosis. Both of these individuals are an integral member of our health care team. Our Oncology Social Worker helps patients navigate the health care system and find support to manage the day-to-day challenges of living with cancer. The Oncology Social Worker can provide education, information on community resources, and financial assistance to those in need. A member of the local clergy is on site most days of the week to offer spiritual guidance to patients. This guidance is given only if the patient so desires; and is offered regardless of their religious affiliation or lack thereof.
