Patient Care Kit

All of our newly diagnosed patients receive a tote bag full of information regarding their type of cancer, possible side effects and resources/support programs. Some of the information includes:

  • The Personal Health Manager folio from the American Cancer Society. Included in this folio is information about your type of cancer, talking with the doctor and other useful items. It is also a good place for you to keep all of your treatment notes and papers.
  • Booklets and brochures:
    • Understanding Radiation Therapy
    • Nutrition information
    • After Diagnosis
    • Caring for the Caregiver
  • Fact sheets on possible side effects of treatment

  • A fact sheet about our office (office hours, etc.) and a list of Frequently Asked Questions
  • Information about membership in H2U
  • A list of on-line resources for cancer patients and their families
