The Cancer Navigation team of oncology registered nurses connects patients to all supportive services necessary for comprehensive, compassionate care from diagnosis through survivorship. Their goal is to educate and support patients and families throughout the cancer journey.

“When you are diagnosed with cancer, it’s like you are being sent on a trip but you don’t know where you are going or what to expect. The cancer care navigators are like travel guides. They explain where you’re going, tell you what to pack and what to expect during the journey. If there are complications during the trip, they are right there to help smooth the way.”    Bliss Cancer Center Patient & Cancer Survivor
