Patient Support

How do we help patients?

Some of the ways we can help individuals facing cancer:

  • Learn about cancer and treatment options
  • Match to a peer mentor who is a trained cancer survivor volunteer
  • Find help with transportation and lodging
  • Get answers to financial and insurance questions
  • Learn how the hospital works and questions to ask the doctor
  • Find local support groups and programs offered by Stony Brook Medicine, the American Cancer Society, and the community to ease the cancer burden.
  • Referrals to Stony Brook's Department of Social Work, Nutrition, and Financial Counseling
  • Referrals to Stony Brook's partner organizations in the community
