In cooperation with the American Cancer Society, cancer patients at Banner Desert Cancer Center have access to a Cancer Navigator at no charge. The program provides guidance for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers to help them navigate the cancer experience.


This community-based partnership between Banner Desert and the American Cancer Society allows outreach to those most in need during the cancer experience.


If you are a cancer patient receiving treatment at Banner Desert Cancer Center, a Cancer Navigator can help you:

  • By providing literature on coping with cancer, what to expect during chemotherapy and radiation, and dealing with side effects of treatment.
  • By referring you to support groups, classes, and other programs for information and support.
  • By helping you identify resources for financial assistance, medication needs, home health care, insurance questions, transportation and other concerns.
  • By listening, caring and helping you in your time of need.
  • By identifying activities that can help ensure a better quality of life.
  • By helping cancer survivors learn to self-navigate.
