We believe quality comprehensive cancer care involves attending to issues beyond the scope of traditional models of medicine. We are committed to treating the whole person, not just thecancer. That care extends to our patient's family and support network. Most of our cancer support services are provided at no additional charge to patients and their families.
Individual, couple, and family counseling. Licensed medical family therapists provide crisis counseling, ongoing scheduled therapy sessions, and unscheduled supportive counseling in waiting rooms, exam rooms, and hospital rooms.
More than 275 volunteers serve at Duke Cancer Center. Our volunteers provide conversation and comfort, offer refreshments, and help patients find locations and resources. Volunteers play a critical role in the day-to-day activities at the Duke Cancer Center. For more information on becoming a volunteer, contact Holly Vincitorio.
Duke Cancer Institute constellates the world-class resources of Duke University, Duke Health and the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center into a collaborative powerhouse. We are poised to drive a paradigm shift in the way long-established cancer centers and institutes have been waging this war.Learn More
