If you’ve ever been close to anyone diagnosed with cancer you know that the diagnosis can change lives in a matter of seconds. A battle with cancer can put a financial, physical and emotional strain on both the patients and their families. Your community-based Willamette Valley Cancer Foundation assists cancer patients and their families during this time of crisis. We provide numerous support services to cancer patients currently undergoing treatment. Support for local cancer patients includes the following services:
Our Support Groups focus on patients and their families coping with cancer and are available in Yamhill, Lincoln and Tillamook Counties.
Our licensed Medical Social Worker, Robyn Edwards, provides counseling for cancer patients and their families at the H.R. Hoover Medical Center in McMinnville. She is skilled at providing comfort to patients with serious illnesses.
Information in our collection of cancer resource materials and online links includes knowledge on specific cancers, coping with serious illnesses and references for community resources.
