A cancer diagnosis changes everything.
When a woman receives a breast cancer diagnosis, her life is altered. Questions and fears build, and the journey ahead can look daunting.
No woman should face breast cancer alone.
Every breast cancer patient at Sutter Lakeside Hospital receives help from a dedicated Breast Cancer Navigator, who partners with each patient to support him or her through diagnosis, treatment, surgery, and recovery.
Navigation services provide emotional and clinical support to Lake County patients when they need it the most, during a vulnerable time in their journey.
The navigator serves as a personal guide throughout diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. The breast cancer navigator also provides personal emotional support, and connects the patient with peer support groups and the broader survivor community.
