Hearing those words, “you have breast cancer" is frightening and overwhelming without the added difficulty of navigating a complex healthcare delivery system.
Because we understand that anxiety, the Breast HealthCare Center at Missouri Baptist provides our patients with a Nurse Navigator who will be available to assist you or your loved one from diagnosis throughout the treatment continuum. As your advocate, our nurse navigator is trained to coordinate with our team of specialists to ensure your well-being throughout your journey.
Your Nurse Navigator will:
- Coordinate your comprehensive care with our team.
- Answer your questions to help you make timely and educated decisions.
- Connect you with the resources Mo Bap can offer, including financial assistance, support groups, survivorship and community organizations.
- Provide emotional support to you and your family.
