Thanks for posting this article. I feel like I have been holding my breath since Oct 2019. My treatments were working for a while and then in March 2020 same time as COVID hit my treatments stopped working. Started another treatment, while on that one everything was going well. Then a few months later that treatment also stopped working. Now on yet another treatment plan. At the Mayo Clinic that I go to I was given a list of groups, however none of them seem to fit my cancer diagnosis. I do not recall there being an Oncology Social Worker being offered, there may have been. I feel I need someone to talk to to help me thru all of this.

Mayo Clinic patients or family members can ask their provider, nursing staff or front desk staff to send the social work department a note that they would like to see a social worker and we will schedule a consult.

You can also call the social work department directly at the location where you are seen at Mayo Clinic
Mayo Clinic Florida: 904-953-6831
Mayo Clinic Minnesota: 507-284-2131
