    Patient navigators guide you through the process of cancer care. They help you with paperwork, make appointments and coordinate all elements of care in collaboration with the rest of your team.

    Social workers offer emotional support and are an ongoing resource to answer questions, address concerns and offer advice. They can help you find out about financial assistance, community resources or how to speak with young children about cancer.
