We understand the worry and confusion that comes with a diagnosis of cancer. In addition to comprehensive, superior medical care, Roswell Park provides a holistic range of services to help you cope with the physical, emotional, practical and day-to-day concerns related to your illness, treatment and lifelong wellness. We hope that our colorectal patients and their families find these resources helpful:
Optimizing your nutrition is an important part of your cancer care. Our dietitians are integral members of your healthcare team and uniquely experienced in working with cancer patients to improve nutrition status before, during and after cancer treatment. Our team can help you meet vital nutrient needs to maintain strength, energy and prevent loss of muscle mass; improve your tolerance of your treatments; and promote healing to assist recovery and reduce infection risk.
Resource Center for Patients and Families
Our staff can help you find reliable and current information on many cancer topics, access books, videos, computers and printers, and connect with Roswell Park and community resources. Check out our headwear boutique to find a hat, wig or scarf that’s right for you.
This online Roswell Park community is for everyone whose life has been touched by cancer.
