Patient and Family Resource Center

The Patient and Family Resource Center (PFRC) is a place where you can relax and learn about your cancer diagnosis, treatment options, managing symptoms and side effects, clinical trials, nutrition, coping, caregiving, and self-care.

We offer:

  • Various comfort items such as lap blankets, pillows, hats, and wigs. We even provide an Image Center where patients can try on wigs and other head coverings in a private space.
  • Informative brochures, videos, and books (in English and Spanish).
  • Computers with online access to the most comprehensive and credible websites for cancer information and community resources.
  • Trained volunteer staff, many of them cancer survivors.

How to Volunteer

Many PFRC volunteers are cancer survivors, or friends or family members of survivors. Others are giving individuals who recognize the need to help others during a time of need. These special people have a unique perspective on the cancer experience and can provide our patients with valuable information and resources. All volunteer candidates are interviewed and given extensive training to work in the PFRC.
