Education & Support
Help During Your Cancer Treatment
If you’re facing cancer, you’re not alone. Enloe’s Cancer Support Services is here for you and your loved ones throughout your journey with free:
Watch Our Welcome Videos
If you’re newly diagnosed, watch our New Patient Welcome videos to learn what’s ahead. Ask loved ones to watch with you. Be sure to watch the Be Prepared and Your First Visit videos before your first appointment.
View Our Pre-Treatment Education Videos
Your nurses offer education when you are here, but research shows that it is often hard for patients to absorb all the information. Watching videos at home with your caregivers is a more relaxed and in-depth way for you to learn how to make your treatment experience the best that it can be. Your nurse can tell you which videos below explain your treatment(s).
Understand Your Anti-Cancer Medications
Prepare for Infusion or Injections at the Enloe Infusion Clinic
Learn How to Manage Side Effects of Chemotherapy
Know What to Expect When You Receive Radiation Treatment
Watch the videos at www.rtanswers.org/videos to learn how to prepare for treatment, hear about possible side effects, know what to expect and more. You have several videos to choose from; just scroll to the one that applies to you (in English and Spanish).
Read Our Patient Guide
You’ll find great insight in our Patient Guide. It’s a booklet all Enloe Regional Cancer Center patients receive when they start treatment here. Whichever cancer treatment you are in need of, this guide is filled with tips, phone numbers and resources on:
- Talking about cancer
- Coping as a caregiver
