Care for cancer patients involves more than tests and treatments. The most effective, personalized care requires support, counseling, and access to information.

Patients who come to the University of Chicago Medicine campus benefit from a wide range of resources that help empower patients and provide hope for families.

The Cancer Resource Center at the University of Chicago offers important answers and resources to families such as:

  • Helpful books, audiotapes, and other resources from the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, the American Lung Association, and other respected organizations
  • Connections to other patients throughout the Chicago metropolitan area
  • Financial assistance information
  • One-on-one counseling
  • Help with transportation
  • Connections to complementary medicine professionals, such as massage therapists
  • Educational events
