Cancer Patient Navigators guide patients and families through the cancer care system. They can provide support and answer many of your questions. They can give you information that helps explain the different aspects of your cancer and the treatment you need. They can also connect you with resources in your community.
Navigators also work with members of your health care team to coordinate your tests and visits for cancer treatment.
After your treatment is finished, a navigator can also help you with your follow-up care.
