Cancer Care

The first several weeks after receiving a cancer diagnosis may be filled with feelings of shock, denial, anger, fear and worry, not only for the person with the disease, but also for friends and family members.

Knowing what to expect and having access to cancer experts close to home can help ease feelings of anxiety and uncertainty for everyone affected.

Our accredited cancer care program provides full-scale cancer care services. From diagnostic testing and advanced treatment options; to help with fatigue and other symptoms; to resources for help with medical bills, basic needs and emotional support, everything you need is conveniently located on our North Kansas City campus. And, you'll have a nurse navigator to walk every step with you.
