“Many cancer patients initially feel a loss of control over their lives. But knowing what to expect and having someone to talk to helps them regain some of that control and focus on treatment and recovery,” says Karen Alban, health navigator at the William E. Kahlert Regional Cancer Center. “From the time a patient is faced with a pending diagnosis, we provide the one-on-one support patients need as they plan a course of treatment with their physician.”
