Breast Health Education & Resources

As a Cambridge Breast Center patient, you will find support throughout your treatment and beyond. Because the impact of a cancer diagnosis reaches beyond the medical office, you will be connected to a wide variety of resources to help meet your needs throughout treatment.

The first step is meeting with our social worker to find out what kinds of support you may need. Some common things we recommend are:

  • Cancer support groups here at our Cambridge Hospital campus
  • Online educational resources you can connect to at home
  • The Virginia Thurston Healing Garden where you can experience nature and participate in complementary therapies
  • Other resources to nourish your mind, body and spirit and help promote healing
