Education and Support
Being diagnosed with cancer is a life-changing experience. It affects every aspect of your being, physically, mentally and emotionally. A cancer diagnosis does not only affect you, but also your family and friends.
During the past few decades there has been much progress made in the detection and treatment of cancer. However, the fear and myths surrounding this disease remain as strong as ever. Urgency in receiving life-saving treatments puts so much demand on you, your body, your time and your life that one often does not get a chance to deal with the mental and emotional toll this disease takes on a person.
Traditional cancer treatments only address your physical needs and often leave you unsupported mentally and emotionally. As a result, one relies on their friends and family for emotional support. The truth of the matter is that even though your friends and family do their best to support you, they are often struggling with their own mental and emotional trauma as result of your disease.
Hart to Heart Cancer Consultants strive to follow a holistic approach by addressing your mental and emotional needs as much as we focus on your physical needs. We strongly believe that the foundation of the support should be built on education. By providing reliable information, we will empower you with the knowledge to overcome the fears caused by myths surrounding cancer and the required treatments.
In addition to education, we will provide you with resources to support the many needs you come across throughout the course of treatment, whether that is a wig or transportation. Hart to Heart Cancer Consultants believe that you need support to not only survive your disease and the toxic treatments, but to emotionally and mentally thrive and evolve through this life-changing event.
Hart to Heart Cancer Consults offers educational seminars and support groups on a regular basis. We invite experts to deliver the most up-to-date scientific information and expert opinion. We provide ample opportunities for your many questions to be answered. These meetings are open to your family and friends so that they can receive the empowering information and education they need to handle their own fears and misconceptions.
Often times, being diagnosed with one cancer means an increased risk of being diagnosed with a second cancer. These second cancers are not necessarily the same cancer coming back, but a new primary cancer. Therefore, more than ever in your life, you are in need of keeping up with your recommended early-detection and preventive tests and measures. At Hart to Heart Cancer Consultants we emphasize prevention more than treatments. We will analyze your individualized risk for potential second cancers and offer personalized preventive measures. We do not limit our focus on the cancer you have already been diagnosed with, but also take a serious look at your family history, your lifestyle and your individual risk factors for potentially developing another cancer.
