"Having a nurse navigator meant the world to me. I don't know that I could have done it all without her!"

— Jo Nell (breast cancer patient)

What will my nurse navigator do?

Your nurse navigator is your go-to person and advocate for anything to do with your diagnosis, treatment and recovery. She will help you navigate treatment at no extra cost.

How she can help:

  • Make sure you understand your diagnosis and treatment.
  • Schedule tests and appointments.
  • Come up with questions to ask your doctor and explain answers.
  • Offer emotional support.
  • Find support groups.
  • Set up counseling appointments.
  • Ease the transition into survivorship.
