Patient Education

Helpful Resources

When a person first learns that they have cancer or a blood disorder/disease the primary concern is survival. As treatment begins, however, new issues become more important. Some of these include relationships with others, side effects from treatments, and nutrition and diet.

Living with cancer or a blood disease/disorder is challenging, and it is best to be educated about issues surrounding survival in order to live a full and productive life.
