Cancer Support Center In Salt Lake City
The St. Mark’s Hospital Cancer Support Center provides education, as well as emotional and social support to those who have a new diagnosis of cancer, to family members, or to someone whose cancer has recurred after many years. Our primary goal is to ease the stress and pain of living with cancer and to help patients and families live as normal a life as possible.
We help guide patients from the time of cancer diagnosis and treatment through the emotional healing process. Because cancer has many diverse forms and symptoms, our program includes a variety of support services and local resources, which include these:
- Support groups
- Education classes
- Internet access
- Library services
- Clinical trials information
