Cancer care is much more than just your treatment. At New Mexico Cancer Center, we offer you individualized cancer support services, from diagnosis all the way through survivorship. Our team of professional Cancer Support Advocates will work with you to identify and overcome challenges and potential barriers to coping with cancer, and receiving the best treatment possible. They will answer your questions about support of all kinds – financial, emotional, counseling, educational, and family. There are additional community resources available that your Cancer Support Advocate may suggest, according to your individual situation.
