The center has partnered with several groups to provide as much support to cancer patients as possible.
The Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara
The Cancer Support Community partners with the Cancer Resource Center to provide free programs of education, emotional support and hope to adults and teens with cancer and their loved ones. All programs are professionally facilitated.
American Cancer Society
Another key partner is the American Cancer Society. With help from the American Cancer Society, the Cancer Resource Center has put together a comprehensive cancer information packet for newly diagnosed patients with literature from ACS and other cancer resources.
A number of local physicians have also been instrumental in expanding the Cancer Program. “We are thrilled with the opening of the Cancer Resource Center. It is an all inclusive facility that offers a wide range of assistance for our patients,” Dr. Lynn Kong, CMH Cancer Committee Chair and Medical Oncologist at Ventura Hematology Oncology Medical Group, noted. “Having information and services easily available for our patients is critical to the treatment and recovery process,” Dr. Thomas Fogel, Radiation Oncologist at Cabrillo Radiation Oncology Center, explained. “Moreover, our community partnerships are truly an added asset to the Cancer Resource Center.
