Living with a serious disease is difficult. Cancer patients and those who care about them face many problems and challenges. Coping with these problems is often easier when people have helpful information and support services.

Ridgeview’s Social Services Department can suggest other resources that help with rehabilitation, emotional support, financial aid, transportation or home care. Services include:
