Welcome to the Slaggie Family Cancer Education Center page. Our goal is to empower patients and their supporters to become active partners in their health care by providing relevant information, increasing knowledge and learning from one another’s experiences. Follow the Cancer Education Center page and stay up-to-date as we post accurate and timely cancer-related information on topics such as cancer prevention, risks, treatments, clinical trials, end-of-life care, and survivorship. No matter where you are in your journey, we are here to help.

Supporting Patients and Caregivers

By Wendy Hanson, MPH, @wendyhanson

shutterstock_362584421Whether you have been diagnosed with cancer and are seeking information, or if you are simply looking for resources to help someone you care about, we can assist you. Our team is available to talk through your questions on managing treatment-related side effects, how cancer has changed you, living with metastatic cancer, dealing with a new diagnosis, coping with loss, fear of recurrence and more. Consultations are free and do not require a provider referral.

In addition to individual consultations, our team also provides a variety of classes in the center (please visit the Events and Offerings tab for more details). If you are unable to attend one of the classes, please feel free to stop by the center and a staff member would be happy to meet with you. If you are not located in Rochester, we encourage you to connect with the American Cancer Society’s Patient Navigator Program by calling 1-800-227-2345. We also welcome calls directly to the center and can be reached at 507-266-9288.

Our goal is to empower you with high quality information when you need it as well as offer a safe environment for you to share, seek assistance and receive support. We look forward to serving you and helping connect you to the resources you need.
