Patient Navigators

Patient Navigators

A cancer diagnosis is one of the most challening experiences anyone will ever deal with. The initial response is shock and a sense of devastation. This is followed by anxiousness of what will happen next and a feeling of helplessness that triggers anger and disappointment. Most patients think they are isolated, as they don't have somebody who actually understands their fears and struggles. A patient's support system influences their emotional response. How they cope and perceive their illness depends on the emotional support they receive.

We at Cytecare understand that dealing with a cancer is not just a physical battle but a mental struggle. Patients need to push their bodies beyond its human limit and develop the endurance to keep moving forward. That is why at Cytecare, we help you discover your inner strength and the fortitude of your spirit with our Patient Navigator support system.

Cytecare Patient Navigator is a one-of-its-kind support system that helps patient cope with cancer diagnosis and deal with the treatment thereafter. Through this unique program, cancer survivors talk about their personal experiences on managing pain, what to expect during treatment, undergoing chemotherapy and its side effects and how to communicate with family members and doctors. Cyctecare Patient Navigators encourage patients to share their feelings and struggles to make them feel better understood.

Cancer involves prolonged and complex treatment which requires guidance. Recognizing emotions and feelings is an important part of coping with a cancer diagnosis. Cytecare Patient Navigators fill this crucial gap that most cancer patients seek. Navigators play a crucial role in exchanging information and supporting the patient at every step, thereby, providing a sense of control and reducing the feelings of helplessness.

At Cytecare we believe a person who has experienced the disease is the best resource person to help the patients through the difficult journey of cancer.
