Going through radiation treatment can seem like a very complicated and sometimes overwhelming process. The good news is that there are all kinds of support available to you, starting with your 21st Century Oncology team and center staff members. Social workers, dietitians, financial managers, we are all here to answer your questions and ease your anxiety through your treatment experience. Call us at any time.

In addition, there are a number of very well-respected online resources that can also provide you with support and radiation therapy information before, during and after you go through treatment. We also recommend that you connect with local support providers by typing 'cancer' or 'cancer support' into your search engine field (for example, Google) followed by the town or city in which you live.
