• Educate you about your diagnosis
• Provide a custom resource guide with information about your diagnosis and treatment team
• Coordinate an appointment with the SAMC Breast Cancer Treatment Team (Consisting of a skilled surgeon, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist)
• Connect you to additional resources such as: a plastic surgeon, certif ied prosthesis fitters, genetic testing, clinical research trial coordinator and support services through our local American Cancer Society chapter
• Provide emotional support throughout treatment and into survivorship
