Cancer Counselors

Survivorship and Support

St. Luke’s cancer counselors/oncology social workers are available to provide guidance in accessing insurance and financial assistance and to provide short-term counseling to individuals with cancer and their family members throughout the continuum of care – from diagnosis through survivorship.

St. Luke’s cancer counselors may help in the following ways:

  • Short-term counseling for patients and/or patient family members.
  • Assistance with preparing for conversations with family, friends and co-workers regarding a cancer diagnosis, and coping with the reactions patients may receive.
  • Guidance to access resources for practical needs such as transportation, insurance, financial assistance, employment, durable medical equipment, personal care and more.
  • Serve as a bridge to the medical care team to assure that patients have an understanding of treatment options and assistance with decision making.
  • Assistance in adjustment to life after cancer treatment. Many people find that the months after completing cancer treatment are especially difficult as they try to return to a more normal lifestyle.
