At Stony Brook Cancer Center, we partner with patients before, during and after their care by providing support programs. Reliable transportation to treatment is a barrier that many patients face during their cancer journey. By offering a platform of transportation services to our patients in treatment we are able to remove these barriers and impact their outcomes. Funding to expand non-emergency medical transportation services will help provide better access for our patients receiving care.
Because prevention is another key pillar of Stony Brook Cancer Center, we have important screening programs as well:
- A fully outfitted Mobile Mammography Van with a mission to make sure every woman on Long Island, age 40 and older, who needs a mammogram has easy and convenient access. All year long, it travels throughout Suffolk and Nassau counties to key locations. For more information and to register, click here.
- Our Lung Cancer Screening Program is another way we are helping to save lives. The Center for Lung Cancer Screening and Prevention offers an annual low-dose computed tomography (CT) scan for individuals at high risk. For more information and to register, click here.
- Additional screenings include ongoing prostate, breast, colorectal cancer screenings, and an annual skin cancer screening event in May.
