More Resources for Cancer Patients Now Available

The Heptner Cancer Center is thrilled to be the hub for a cancer resource program that strives to reduce the impact of cancer on the residents of Wyoming through community-based efforts. A new onsite coordinator will serve as a resource navigator for local cancer patients, providing guidance and education.

Thanks to a two-year grant of $170,001 from the Wyoming Cancer Resource Services Project, residents from Campbell, Crook, Johnson, and Sheridan counties have access to the cancer resource center at CCH and learn about their specific cancer and how to navigate choices and treatments, and gain access to cancer screenings, wigs, books, education materials, gas cards for travel to out-of-town cancer treatments, and much more.

“We are so pleased that Campbell County Health was chosen to host the resource coordinator. She will be a great help to our local cancer patients and those in surrounding areas by filling the role of a patient navigator, helping patients logistically, and emotionally cope with cancer,” said Leigh Worsley, MS, RTT, CMD, Cancer Care Director.

Kate Johnson, BSW, will soon be available to visit with patients one-on-one at the cancer resource center. Check with the registration staff to see when she is available for a visit. She welcomes anyone who has a concern about cancer.

Johnson also serves as a cancer advocate and information expert on the community and state level for the northeast region of the state.
