Because we understand that a breast cancer diagnosis can be a time of uncertainty and anxiety, at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital our certified breast health specialist helps guide each newly diagnosed woman through the many treatment options available to her. From diagnosis through follow-up care, this specially trained oncology nurse is a caring, compassionate and knowledgeable resource. She works in collaboration with the physician, technologists, and entire healthcare team to provide support, education and guidance through the journey of diagnosis, treatment and beyond. Our breast health specialist can help support you through the anxiety that often goes along with a breast cancer diagnosis. Additionally, she provides recommendations to helpful educational resources and referrals to social workers, psychologists, support and medical staff. As a part of the cancer care team, she works to ensure your emotional support even after treatment. The special relationship between you and your breast health specialist doesn't end when you leave the hospital. She'll also follow up with periodic calls to check on your well-being and provide an open ear.
