Because your illness affects more than just your body, you may find yourself dealing with difficult emotions or feelings of sadness, depression or anxiety. Sometimes having an experienced specialist listen to your concerns can be helpful. Other times, medication can make emotional distress easier to bear. Memorial has partnered with RiverBend Cancer Services to provide a free psychosocial assessment to all cancer patients.
RiverBend Cancer Services is a local agency, whose primary goal is to assist people with cancer and their caregivers in St. Joseph County, Indiana, by providing financial assistance, advocacy services and emotional support.
