This includes free access to cancer navigators, along with support groups and classes, education and planning resources, community programs, and helpful online resources. Franciscan also offers Cancer Resource Centers at locations around the South Puget Sound. And for those who need it, we have information on palliative care. Together, these resources are designed to provide patients with the information and support they need for each part of the process.
